Subjects Taught
Ms. Spires' Art Class


I started my college education at the University of Georgia in the fall of 2011 after graduating from Wheeler County High School as Valedictorian. I graduated in May 2015 with a B.F.A. in Art/Art Education from the University of Georgia as a part of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Go Dawgs!


This is my first year as a teacher! I am thrilled to be a part of the Butts County School System and Stark Elementary School!! I student taught at Comer Elementary School in Comer, GA (Madison County) and Morgan County High School in Madison, GA.


I have lived in Georgia my entire life. I grew up in a small town in south Georgia, McRae. I recently moved to Jackson after living in Athens for four years. I lived in Italy for two months on a study abroad trip, and became obsessed with traveling! I am also obsessed with college football, Diet Coke, and inspiring kids to learn new things. One of my favorite things in the world is to see a child find something that they are passionate about! I hope to inspire all of my art students to grow, learn, create, and use their talents to serve their community.
