Mrs. Sheena Custer
Sheena Custer is from a small town in West Virginia- similar in size to Middleburg. It was a lovely place to grow up, but art was not offered in her elementary school. Instead, she found art in nature, in books, in play, and in her free time- she would draw. Her commitment to art education only grew and because of this she knew she wanted to be an elementary art teacher. Her goal in life is to share art experiences with her young students and include parents and the community in the journey. Her passion lies with bringing groups of people who have a shared love of the arts together. Sheena earned a Bachelor of Science from Miami University in Ohio, and a Masters from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Over the course of her twenty-year career, in which she taught in Maryland and Fairfax County, she has helped hundreds of students and communities weave the arts into their lives. When Sheena is not teaching, you can find her running outdoors, tending to her chickens, and managing the intense schedules of youth sports for her three boys.
