Marissa Glenn is the high school art educator, teaching grades 8-12. Mrs. Glenn teaches three various levels of art, including art one, art two, and advanced art. Each level serves as an exploration of multiple media types, art history, creative thinking, and production of original works of art.
Mrs. Glenn has worked with kids of all ages in the visual arts, previously teaching at the Toledo Museum of Art and the Young Artists At Work program through the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo. Mrs. Glenn is a graduate of Clay High School and Bowling Green State University. At BGSU, Mrs. Glenn received her BFA in Graphic Design and Ceramics, later returning to school to get her teaching licensure.
She resides in Toledo, Ohio with her husband, Scott, two children, Iris and Luke (who are also Lake Flyers), and their sweet dog, Butter. Along with art, Mrs. Glenn enjoys running, camping, visiting local coffee shops, going to concerts, and having good conversations with great friends. Dave Matthews Band is her go-to music, along with the Lumineers and Mumford and Sons. Mrs. Glenn is inspired by communication through her own art and hopes that she can help her students to realize that they too, have a voice, visually.
