Mrs. B. Shepherd

Hello, Azle Artists, Parents, and Guardians... My name is Mrs. Shepherd, and I will be your Creative Teacher and Guide for the 2021-2022 school year! 

This is my 8th year at AHS and my 14th year as an educator. I have taught Art in both the traditional and digital graphics sections, and have enjoyed watching students produce beautiful works of art from each section. My first few years in education were spent teaching special education.

Personally, I love to work with both 2D & 3D art media, I'm an extreme out-of-the-box thinker, and I love to get my hands dirty... so get ready for a creative year!

I am a coach's wife, mother of two, and dog momma of a Siberian Husky. Along with our two rescues, a lab and a German Shepherd. We love our Faith, Family, Football & Baseball. Coach Shepherd is my husband and our son has joined us at the HS and will be driving soon and our daughter is cheering for AJH this year.

We are all looking forward to an AWESOME school year! Go Hornets!!

  • Remind Information for All of Mrs. Shepherd's Art Classes:
    If you are a parent or guardian, I would highly suggest you join your child's class so that you may be in the loop and updated on projects, due dates, supplies needed, along with tips and tricks to help your student's navigation through the world of art as easy as possible.
