Mrs. Emily Hearne


I am so excited to start my third year here at Coder Elementary as the art teacher on campus! I am so grateful to be here in Aledo and to be a part of this wonderful program here with your little ones.

I will be teaching my students the elements of art, different mediums and how to utilize them, as well as care of art supplies. We will also be learning about different artists, cultures, and movements throughout art's history. 

A little bit about my professonal experience is that I am a graduate of Tarleton State University and a recent graduate of Texas Tech University  with my Master of Art Education. I began teaching five years ago and I have taught in both Boyd ISD and Weatherford ISD as a middle school art teacher. Before I began teaching I was a paraprofessional here in Aledo at the DNGC and I am so excited to have made my way back into this wonderful district! I have loved art since the young age of 7 and I am thrilled to share my passion as an educator.

Aside from my love of art I also have a love of animals! I currently have ten chickens, 3 horses (Doc, Sea Sea and Dandy) and  two dogs (Gus and Scout). They all hold a very special place in my heart and I am sure they will come up in classroom conversations many times throughout the year!

I am also married to my wonderful husband Mat and we were blessed welcoming our first child, Andrew, over the summer! 

I will be on maternity leave until November and I am looking forward to seeing all of my students when I return! They will be in great hands creating some fun projects while I am away.

I can't wait to see all of my students and to show them the great little artists they can be!
