Hi! I'm Mrs. Dockery!
This is my first year at TJHS and I have been teaching for 13 years.
I've taught Middle School and High School art classes including Pre-AP Art and AP Art History. I have also worked as a docent for different museums.
My family consist of my husband James (Lawyer), my daughter Brittani (Lawyer) and my baby girl Lauren (Corporate Buyer). I really enjoy Art (of course) and I'm very interested in metalwork and Zumba!
More about me....
I'm here to help you appreciate art, art history, theory, obtain visual thinking skills and art making. You will leave my class each day with new information.
I'm truly glad you are here! I want you to be successful and have a fun experience in Art!
Please feel free to talk to me if you have questions or need help. I'm around before or after school.
