Mrs. Colella

My name is Mrs. Colella and this will be my 7th year teaching art. I am also a former TJ student, I loved this school! I also went to Orchard Valley and graduated from WTHS in 2006. In first grade I told my mom that "when I grew up" I wanted to be an art teacher. I've followed my dream and couldn't be happier than to be able to teach art every day!


Art is a huge passion of mine. I am an artist and I also love to create decorative cakes. (Which is also why my classroom is decorated with so many cupcake decorations!) I graduated from Rowan University in 2010 with a B.A. in Art Education.


I love seeing the students getting excited about their artwork. Each year I can see how much growth each student has made since first grade art, and it truly is AMAZING. Hard work pays off! Great job TJ artists!!


Artfully yours,

Mrs. Colella
