October’s Middle School Teacher Spotlight is Ms. Sierra Hyer. We are excited to welcome Ms. Hyer to our Arts Department. She is a recent graduate of Winthrop University with a concentration in ceramics. Miss Hyer went into teaching because she wants to help students demonstrate their creativity through art and help them to find their confidence. She believes art is a great way to express yourself and to learn basic problem-solving skills. Miss Hyer is from Greenville, S.C. where she’s been teaching art since she was 16-years-old at her family’s studio, The Art Haven, in Mauldin. When not at school Miss Hyer can be found playing with her new puppy Louie or creating her own art!
