Donna Hockman

I'm coming to Aspen Elementary from the Denver Green School following the relocation of my husband Eric, who moved to the Roaring Fork Valley to begin a new career in PR with the Carbondale based agency, rygr. From the beginning of my teaching career in my hometown of Richmond, VA, to my time at the Denver Green School, I have been teaching art since 2014. I received my Bachelor of Fine Art in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University, where I paired a heavy class load of studio art with child development in psychology and art education. I'm passionate about making connections with my students through visual art and giving them the tools to express themselves while conveying meaning through their artwork. When creating art of my own, I love painting and working with clay and gathering much of my inspiration from nature. Outside of inspiring young minds, I'm an avid mountain biker, skier, hiker, and rock climber. I can't wait to explore the Elk Mountains for years to come and learn from all of you as well as the wonderful students of the Aspen Elementary.
