After living most of her adult life overseas in Germany, Ms. Agar is very happy to be settled back in the States teaching multi-levels of art and AP Art History at Hightower High School. Previously, she taught art and ELA for the Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS) at Heidelberg High School in Heidelberg, Germany, and art to grades K--5 at Mannheim Elementary School in Mannheim, Germany. She has also taught Art I, II, and III at Sugar Land Middle School (FBISD) and eleventh grade ELA at Clements High School (FBISD).
Ms. Agar holds an MEd in Special Education from the University of Maryland (College Park) and a BS in Art Education from the University of Houston (Central Campus). She has also completed graduate studies at the University of Cambridge in England and attended the AP Summer Institute at Rice University.
Her extensive travels in Europe have included chipping away at the Berlin Wall during its fall, WALKING on Lake Baikal in Siberia (one Spring Break when it was frozen over), and driving a standard transmission car in the left side of the road along the rocky Irish coast! Still, her favorite spot of all is Paris--at night.
Art in all of its forms is Ms. Agar's passion, as well as teaching students who hopefully enjoys it as much as she does! She especialy loves observing the complex expressions of the human face and trying to capture them on watercolor paper in chalk pastel. She finds the students at HHS to be very endearing and hugely talented, and she is eager to urge them to excel in all aspects of the fine arts.
