Hi! I’m Sheryl Lamme, artist, teacher, researcher, wife, mom, and nana. This is my 20th year of teaching art at Partridge Elementary. I have been passionate about creating art as long as I can remember! (Unfortunately, the large, bright red lipstick mural I drew on the stark white canvas of the bathroom wall at the age of three was not so well received!) Today my art making is primarily sculpture and fibers, mostly exploring the concept of identity.
My husband, David, is a retired Naval officer. Our family has lived in Tennessee, the Azore Islands, Portugal, Maryland, and California. In 2000 we made our home in Waynesville and enjoy living here in the heart of the Ozarks.
Creativity is a critical component of twenty-first century education. The fine arts hold a unique opportunity for fostering the development of innovation and imagination. I look forward to viewing life through the eyes, hearts, and minds of the students I am fortunate enough to work with!
