Kelly Finnerud - Music Instructor/Aide
I earned my Music Education degree in 2001 from SFASU and spent a few years teaching middle and high school band before staying home with our young children. Now our 4 kids are growing quickly, and I'm loving teaching elementary students! I've been at the Charter School since 2010 as a parent then as an educator. I enjoy teaching the students to read and write music while giving them a safe place to explore and create.

Pam Neely - Art Instructor/Aide
My adventures in art education began at Oklahoma State University. I then taught art in North Carolina public schools and ceramics at Alabama State College before moving to Texas. I have been connected to the Charter School since its inception, first as a parent in the first Charter class, and shortly thereafter as the art teacher. My approach to art education is to create projects based on the elements and principals of art with a heavy dose of art history.
