    Nancy Borden. High School/Intermediate Art. Mrs. Borden teaches both 5th and 6th grade art in addition to teaching 2-D drawing classes at the high school levels 2-4.  In her classes, students explore how to apply all the Elements and Principles of design throughout this school year.  Students also study past and current artists to get inspired and improve their artistic techniques.   All projects will incorporate the art TEKS (Texas essential knowledge and skills) to make the projects meaningful and productive. Mrs. Borden has been with Mabank ISD for 26 years and teaching art for 19 of those years.  She enjoys painting and making jewelry in her spare time.  She loves sharing her knowledge of art with her students and watching them grow in their artistic skills and confidence.  You can see some of her personal art works on under the Mabank HS page /teacher examples.  You can also follow her on Pinterest. She will be posting student's art work as it develops on, so check it out from time to time to see what projects your child has been working on.  She looks forward to a creative and fun year with all her students.

  • Kyra Tracy:  Southside/Lakeview Elementary Art. I am a blessed mom with three daughters and a new one on the way. Yes, another awesome daughter! I have taught public education for the past Fourteen years serving as an elementary-college level teacher in multiple subject areas. I just can’t get enough of kids young or old. My specialization is in the Visual Arts but, I have a strong love for all subject areas. I work hard to ensure that my students receive interdisciplinary lessons that re-enforce mathematics, science, history, and language arts within the art classroom. This year I am teaching art at Southside and Lakeview Elementary schools Kindergarten – 4th grade. I have around 720 students that want to learn and have fun; so do I! Together, as students we learn a lot about each other and the world around us, both past and present, while making art.

    Have fun creating something new today!
