Hi! I’m Rina Vinetz. I teach visual and performing arts to 400 students in kindergarten-fifth grades at High Tech Elementary North County, located in San Marcos, California. This is my 14th year teaching art; it is my third year teaching at HTeNC.
Our school is part of the High Tech High charter schools. We are a project-based learning school with full arts integration in all classrooms. On K6art.com, you will find all sorts of arts lessons, including some lessons that incorporate math, science, literacy, music and theater.
Prior to this job, I taught traditional elementary art for 10 years in a traditional kindergarten-sixth grade public school. Before that…I was a stay-at-home mom. I started volunteering as an art docent at my son’s school. I liked sharing art with children so much that I decided to make it my new career. When my youngest entered kindergarten, I enrolled in school myself. I ultimately earned an art teaching credential.
Needless to say, I am a big fan of parent volunteers in the schools.
I love teaching art so much it doesn’t even feel like work (except for cleaning the sink – that definitely feels like work).
