Ms. Dobyns hopes you find this website to be helpful and fun! This site is a work in progress, and it is her goal to improve this website each and every year with more links and important information for her students. This site will hopefully answer many of the questions that students and their parents may have throughout the year.
This is Ms. Dobyns' fifth year teaching art at the Upper Elementary. She was born in Huntington Beach, CA and she was raised in Chicago, IL. She has been down in Ocean Springs for about half of her life and is an Ocean Springs High School Alumni. She has a B.F.A. in Studio Art with a concentration in painting from Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL as well as a Master's Degree in Secondary Education from William Carey University. Art is, was, and always will be her passion. If she is not creating art, she is thinking about her next project! She also sponsors the Drama Club here at the Upper Elementary and has a blast putting on two shows; one around Christmas time and one in the Spring! Besides art, she loves reading and writing, cooking and eating good food, traveling, being on the water, putting puzzles together, snuggling with her dog, and spending time with her family and friends. She am looking forward to another great year of teaching young minds how to expand their creativity and think outside of the box!
