Welcome to the Art Room!
My name is Ms. Sara (Brie) Kane and this is my first year teaching at E.B. Ellington Elementary School. I was born and raised in Montgomery County, Maryland, just outside of Washington D.C.. I initially attended College of Charleston where I began to explore my passion for Art. I transferred to University of Maryland to further pursue my interest in Art/Design and graduated with my B.A. in Studio Art in 2000. Upon graduating, I worked as a Graphic Designer for a mortgage company and also for a small design firm in Bethesda, Maryland. I eventually made my way back down to Charleston and worked as a freelance designer while pursuing a variety of other interests of mine. I always held a desire to teach Elementary Art and found an alternative certification program in SC of which I am currently pursuing. I continue to grow and learn and am thrilled to have the opportunity to share my passion with the students of Ellington.
I believe that Art is a great outlet for children to express themselves and that’s what I love the most about my job! In addition to Art, one of my greatest joys in life is traveling. I also love to scuba dive, read and spend time with my family.
