Mrs. Raenell Rodriguez
Hello Patriots! This is my 6th year at Veterans Memorial High School -- I came on board when Veterans opened in 2016 to begin our art program. I am excited that we have now grown to a staff of 4 art teachers offering Art I, Art & Media Communications as well as advanced art instruction in Drawing, Painting & Sculpture. Currently I teach Advanced Drawing and for the 4th year, AP Art & Design Portfolio.
I have 17 years of teaching experience which began here in Judson ISD teaching art at both Elolf Elementary & Olympia Elementary. After the K-5 art program was eliminated in 2011, I taught one year of 8th Grade US History at Judson Middle School. I continued teaching K-5 art in both Comal ISD & Northeast ISD before returning to Judson in 2016.
Prior to teaching I was a Graphic Designer & Illustrator at Lackland AFB, San Antonio College & Our Lady of the Lake University.
Mr. Rodriguez and I are the parents of 2 adult daughters, one here in San Antonio and the other in Boston, MA. We love to travel and I enjoy visiting art museums wherever I go, my favorite so far being the Art Institute of Chicago.
