Rhonda Michels

Rhonda Michels has been teaching for 19 years with 18 of those years at McKinley Middle School. She received her BA and MA in Middle School Education from the University of Northern Iowa. She is a proud and original board member/instructor in the McKinley Middle School Program of the Arts that existed from 1999-2001 and is excited about being a board member/instructor in the Eastside Arts Academy. In addition to spending time with her husband and daughter, she has many creative outlets which include paper crafting, scrapbooking, sewing and antiquing. She credits both her mom and dad for blessing her with the knack of lending a creative eye and hand to ordinary and not so ordinary objects that end up becoming original \"works of art\". She looks forward to sharing her talents with students.
