Hello! My name is Jennifer Willard. This is going to be my ninth year teaching here at Reagan High! Go Raiders!!! I love working here and love teaching art even more. The Reagan visual art department has won numerous art awards and been recognized at many art shows. I am very proud of our TWO National Scholastic Art Awards! I am also an instructor at The Sawtooth throughout the year.
I have a K-12 Art Education degree from UNC-Greensboro and a minor in Art History. My passion for art started in elementary school and I knew I only wanted to be an art teacher. I am originally from Randleman, NC and my parents and younger brother still live there.
