About Me

Welcome to Art at Southard Middle School!  I am so excited to be teaching you this year.  My name is Mrs. Rios.  I live in Princeton with my husband, Gregg and have 2 children attending PISD. (Addison Alexander - 9th grade and Ainslee Alexander - 5th grade.)  I also have a fur baby named Asher.  He is a black lab mix and really spoiled :) I love reading, doing family history, cooking, gardening, hiking, walking/running, riding my bike, doing yoga, and spending time outdoors with my family.  I love doing projects around my house and especially love doing arts and crafts of any kind.  I love spicy food like Thai, Indian, and Mexican.  (I could eat TexMex for every meal of the day.) I attended college at The University of Texas at Austin and finished up at The University of Texas at Arlington completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts.  I studied graphic design, 2-D and 3-D art, ceramics, photography, and painting.  I love art history, museums, reading about artists/artworks and teaching others about new artists and techniques.  I know that we all have the ability to create in us.  I look forward to having lots of fun this year!!!
