Sherise Curtis began her teaching career in Tallahassee after graduating from Florida State University in 2010. After some time teaching in public schools, she found she enjoyed teaching students with diverse needs and left public education to pursue work in a residential community for adults called, Farmsteads of New England. Farmsteads is a program in New Hampshire with a focus in farming and the arts for people with special needs. Initially trained as a farmhand, she soon became the art program coordinator, developing many opportunities for clients to sell and display their work. After five years, Ms. Curtis returned to sunny Florida earning certification to teach exceptional student education, K-12. Since then she has been teaching both art and exceptional student education, being nominated for “Teacher of the Year,” by her colleagues in 2016. Outside of school, Ms. Curtis teaches private art lessons for children and adults and also paints murals. She enjoys living a creatively driven life and is truly passionate about sharing that with others, with the deep-held belief that art is a language that anyone can speak.
