• Hi, I am Mrs. Tollenaar! I am the Middle School Visual Arts Teacher!
    Here is a little bit of my background, I was born and raised right here in the good ole town of West Plains, Missouri. I graduated from West Plains High School in 2004, and then received my bachelors of Arts in Design Arts and minor in Art History from Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. I went on to continue my education in the Master of Arts of teaching program at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri!
    This will be my fifth year at West Plains R-7 school district. My first year I was the part time art teacher at West Plains Elementary and South Fork Elementary! Then, I was given the great opportunity of transferring to the middle school. This was a fantastic move for me, and I feel right at home. 
     If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact me at mary.tollenaar@zizzers.org.
