Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jennifer De Angelo Baxter
I am very excited to be teaching 8th grade and 6th grade art at Eagle Ridge Middle School this year. Art has been a huge part of my life for as far back as I can remember. I attended the University of Notre Dame (go Irish!), graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, concentration in painting. I also have a passion for education, and received a Master of Science in Education from Shenandoah University. I believe that art should be exciting and fun, so I'm always on the lookout for unconventional projects to bring to the classroom.
Continuing to create is very important to me and I am dedicated to my personal art production. I'm always looking for ways to work on my personal art, while being a mom to 2 little boys. I also share my work with my students whenever possible. You can view my personal work at www.deangelobaxterart.com. I am also a published author and illustrator. I wrote and illustrated a book for my older son (Donovan, age 5), and I am currenlty working on another book for my younger son (Nash, age 2). My book is available at several stores in Downtown Leesburg and on Amazon: I Wish I Could Ride on a Rainstorm
