Mrs. Wagaman - Art

Greetings from Sarah Wagaman - current art teacher grades K-4.  I teach K, K/1, and 1st at the Charlotte Lappla and grades 2,3, and 4 at the Don Gill Elementary.  I have nearly 600 students a week in one rotation as well as teach High School WOLA art history.  My qualifications consist of teaching pre-k through adult in art.  I have a Bachelor's degree in Art Education,  Master's in Education, and a Master's in Educational leadership K-12.  I love to create and the students are amazingly enthusiastic and energized coming to Art class!

If you need to reach me during the school day you can call me on Thursday mornings 8:30-9:10 at 570-724-1811 or email me anytime at
I not only enjoy teaching art, but love creating on my own.  You may be wandering  through the woods and see me hiking with my camera.  Running is another passion that has many benefits in aiding my creativity.
Please note the annual District Wide Art show is the first week in May and I'm always seeking for volunteers as we begin in January (no artistic skills required)! We also celebrate National Youth Art month in March and students create placemats that are distributed to local businesses/eateries so distribution is appreciated!

Welcome to the

Elementary Art Department!

Welcome to the Elementary Art Department- Kindergarten through Fourth grade!  What a great place to learn about numerous artists, processes of art, various media, cross-curricular and multicultural content! 

  • A couple of points of interest:  I have paint shirts, but it's never a bad idea not wear the best clothing on art day!!
  • ****I will periodically be adding useful art resources

I would be glad to sit and talk with you or possibly recruit you for art show :)
Thank you!
