    My name is Denise Roche, and I will be your child's art teacher this year for "All Day Kindergarten", and 1st - 5th grades.  With a degree in Interior Design from Purdue University, I am a licensed, nationally certified corporate designer.  I worked for five years at international architectural firms when I realized that I was meant to follow in my parents' footsteps in becoming a teacher.  I hold a Master's of Education degree from DePaul University, with endorsements in art and social sciences.  I have been teaching Art since 2003.  Being an art teacher allows me to be in the classroom, enriching students' minds creatively, while passing on my own passion for the subject, which is something that is very important to me!
