Mrs. Thuan (Sage) Murine

I am starting my second decade of teaching. Over six years of my teaching experience had been in regular education in various elementary grade levels. My love for art led me to be the art educator that I am today.  I have a wonderful husband and three super sweet cats. I love to travel as much as I love art.  I have been fortunate to have learned several languages (English, Chinese, French, and Vietnamese). Although I am privileged to have knowledge of these languages, art has always been my main communication tool because I consider it to be a universal language.  My goal is to help my students appreciate art as a communication tool as well as a form of self-expression.

Mrs. Rachel Baeder

Hello! My name is Rachel Baeder, and it is an honor to serve the students of Madison City Schools.

I have always dreamed of being an educator since I was a child. I found my love for art later in life during my first semester of college. Art opened my mind to a whole new perspective on life.  I have been, and will continue to be, forever changed by its impact.

I am an Athens State University graduate with a Bachelors Degree in Art Education (P-12). As a certified Art Educator, I am excited to show my students what Art can do in their lives!

I believe in personal growth and continue to seek opportunities to learn more about the world and about myself. I love learning new things about people, diverse cultures, and art making!
