Jennifer Painter, a new teacher at Laurel High School, specializes in classes such as La cuisine, ProStart, FACS and Interior Design. With this being

her first year teaching Interior Design and it being her first year teaching high school, Painter has talked about what a wonderful class it is and the struggles that came with it. Painter herself had to take this class when she went to college so she has some background knowledge of this class. Painter also said, “I have to reteach myself the curriculum that I was taught in college, now teaching students myself.” With all of that said, however, Painter’s classes have been successful and engaging for a large spread of students. Interior Design is a lesser known elective for students. This semester, the class has made a timeline of how houses have evolved over the years, and had to make their own out of natural materials they might find outside. Makenna Rawson said, “Lisa Terry, the previous teacher, recommended this class to me. I enjoy the projects because they allow us to be creative and use our own style.” There is also a trip to Moss Mansion coming up for these students so they can apply the knowledge they’ve gained. They have previously learned about the principles of design in class so Painter thought it was a good idea to take the students to see how this is applied to the real world. Rawson said, “I am also looking forward to the Moss Mansion trip coming up because we have learned about the principles of design and now we get to go see how they are put to use.”

Another student in Painter’s class is Maddison Johnson. She said, “I took this class because I needed to fill a spot in my schedule, but I ended up having a lot of friends in this class and enjoy the projects. I am very excited to go on the field trip because I’ve never been on an actual field trip before.” The Interior Design class has something to offer everyone, and each concept in class can be applied to the real world.
