    Mrs. Swearingin has been teaching K-12 for 21 years in Kansas, Tennesse, and Missouri. She has her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Commercial and Graphic Design. She loves helping students finding their inner artist and showing them how to express themselves. Mrs. Hogan has been teaching for 22 years and an additional 5 years as a para. She has taught at three schools in Texas before she came to Ozark. Her favorite part of teaching is the relationships with the students and showing them that they can create artworks that they had no idea they could do! Mrs. Hogan chartered a chapter of National Junior Art Honor Society here at the Ozark Junior High this year, so students have a place to connect with other art students.
