Meet Ms. Feldman
My name is Terri Feldman and I am the Elementary Art Teacher here at Panorama. This is my 9th year of teaching. My first four years teaching art were at Highland CSD which is near Iowa City. I grew up in Indianola, Iowa where Hot Air Balloons are a common site during the summer. After High School I attended Iowa State University. I spent many years there originally studying Pre-Architecture but changed my major to Art. That’s where I discovered I truly love being able to create art! But, I must say that clay and throwing on the wheel is my favorite! So, after receiving my Bachelors of Arts I continued my study there and received my Masters of Arts which focused in Ceramics. It was many years later when I considered a career in teaching and returned to school to gain my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Drake University.
One of my hobbies is bicycle riding and I have been lucky enough to say I’ve ridden RAGBRAI now eight times. It’s also where I met my boyfriend and we continue to ride together often. Another hobby I have is renovating the home we share in Pleasant Hill. And lastly, I am fond of gardening, I’ve spent many weekends planting flowers, shrubs and trees.
I am very happy to be here at Panorama and every day I look forward to teaching and inspiring young minds in the creative arts.
