Meet Mrs. Connell

Hello! My name is Mrs. Connell, and I am thrilled to be a Wildcat! I am eager to meet all of my new artistic friends!


I grew up in Central Pennsylvania before graduating from Penn State in 2007. For the last thirteen years, I taught elementary art in the Northern York County School District. Teaching art has brought so much joy to my life and I cannot wait to share my passion with all of you!


My husband is also an educator, and together we have a son in first grade, as well as a two-year-old daughter who is silly and sweet. We love to read, make things, play games, and go for walks with our miniature Dachshund.

When making my own artwork, I love all kinds of drawing. I've also begun teaching myself some calligraphy. When it comes to making art with students, I love to paint and use clay--the messy stuff is the best stuff!
