Cheryl Van Rysdam
Welcome to Art!!!
My name is Cheryl Van Rysdam, but to most of our students, I am Mrs. V. I am very excited to be the Art Teacher at Dogwood Elementary. This will be my 4th year to teach in NCISD, but my 27th year of teaching Art - WOW!!! I am married to my best friend, Bill and we have 2 very spoiled rescue dogs named Pearl and Bella. I have 2 very talented daughters, Caitlin is a chef that creates lots of delicious dishes and Erin is a middle school PE teacher who is great at every sport she tries! I love to travel all over the world and visit museums and famous sites. At home, I enjoy reading, cooking, gardening, running and of course artsy things!
As always, I am looking forward to a creative year with all of my Dogwood Elementary artists!!!
