Stephen F. Austin State University

Art/Music

Thomas Magnuson
I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in Religious Studies. I have a passion for teaching the importance of music and the beauty in music. I want students to understand that music allows total expression of one's self. I have been working with children in many different teaching situations for five years. I have been giving guitar lessons for four years and have been playing music since the age of three, beginning with piano. In my free time I love to be with my wife Shelby, spend time with family and friends play music, lead worship, and enjoy many outdoor activities.

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.
