Ms. Mary Vande Voorde

My name is Ms.Mary Vande Voorde and I go by the nickname Ms V2 as I have 2 V's in my name. This prevents confusion with Mrs. Vanallen, whose nickname is also "Mrs. V."
I have taught art for 20+ years, working in Alabama, Florida, and Arizona. When I started teaching in Huntsville, I taught at Butler High School. When Butler closed, I moved over to the Academy for Academics and Arts teaching K-8. Currently, I am teaching Middle School Digital Photography and 2D/3D Visual Art to students in grades 3 through 8.

My husband is an Independent contractor on the Arsenal, and I have a son attending the University of Florida on an academic scholarship, majoring in engineering and computer applications.

In my spare time I enjoy spinning, swimming, yoga, lifting weights, working out, hiking, and taking my doxie for walks. I love nature and am an environmental activist. I love doing art, from making 3D sculptures with found objects to raku pottery,ceramics, painting, and design with two dimensional art. You will see me supporting many local visual arts events.
