Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Allison Nagashima
I feel so blessed and excited to be the K-8 art teacher at St. John’s. I cannot wait to share my knowledge of art history and the process of making art. I want my students to experience art and understand how much it affects their lives. I enjoy creating my own artwork, viewing other artists work, and teaching art to young people.
Previously, I taught in the Marysville Schools at the middle school level. I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art (Visual Communication Design) from the University of Dayton and a Master's of Art in Teaching degree from Kent State University. In addition to being and art educator I am also a graphic designer. I worked for six years as a package and brand identity designer. I currently create custom cards for any event.
My husband and I live in Dublin and we have two boys, Jenson and Quinn, and a black lab named Pocky. In my free time I enjoy traveling, biking, hiking and spending time with my family and friends.
