Ms. Dessa just moved to North Carolina from Colorado, where she was born and raised. The amount of trees and greenery here in the Carolina’s are unbelievable to her. She has been teaching for the past 26 years. Education is her career, but the arts are her passion. There is nothing that fulfills Dessa as much as a creative environment. Dessa earned majors in theater and art from Adams State University. Holding a paintbrush, pulling out glitter and heating up her glue sticks bring a smile to her face. Drawing, painting and charcoal are her go to forms of medium. She definitely finds magic in sharing the love of the arts with her students. The imagination needs to be fostered and encouraged to try all forms of artistic expression. Dessa is beyond excited to work with the students at Ludmila.
