My name is Joan Dudley. This is my 29th year teaching in Caroline County. I have taught at Ladysmith Elementary, Lewis and Clark Elementary, Bowling Green Primary and Bowling Green Elementary. I enjoy helping children to develop their fullest creative potential. Teaching art is not just a job for me, it is a hobby. As the proud grandmother of two (and one on the way), I feel a connection with the students here at Bowling Green Elementary. As far as professional training is concerned, I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, as well as a Masters in Education Degree (Guidance Counseling), both from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. I am proud to experience the best of both worlds (being a grandmother and an art teacher), and of having the fortune to witness the growth and development of so many little souls. It is always my hope to inspire them as much as they inspire me.
