Our Art Teacher is Ms. Tesh (MONDAYS).
Julia Tesh is entering her 9th year with WSFCS. She is looking forward to another year of creativity with children! Her homebase school is Bolton Elementary and, as much as she cherishes the students and faculty there, she is equally excited to get to know new faces at Virtual Academy. A few of Ms. Tesh's loves are watercolor painting, cooking, being outside, getting snuggles from her 2 cats, and being involved with her church family.
