Albert Einstein once said, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” Julia Hovanec, Assistant Professor of Art Education holds that quote close to her heart as she works to help nurture future art educators. As an art educator, Julia has over twenty-six years of experience. She taught elementary and middle school art in The School District of the City of York and currently inspires undergraduate and graduate art education students and education students at Kutztown. Dr. Hovanec has presented at conferences at the local, state and national level as well as well as facilitated many professional development workshops and seminars in Pennsylvania. She earned her PhD in Education through Capella University in 2011. Her research involved pre-serice art teachers, professional identity and reflective practice.
