My name is Mr. Sickles I have lived in Des Moines for 50 years I went to school at Riley elementary, Hillis elementary, Franklin junior high and the graduated from Hoover. I really enjoy teaching at the same district that I attended. I have been teaching at Garton for over 20 years. I enjoy seeing a students eyes light up when their art project turns out great or when I choose their piece to be in the district art show. I also am a varsity football coach at North. Its great to see some of my former students playing football at North. In my spare time, I enjoy taking my 185 pound saint Bernard and my pit bull to the dog parks. They love to ride in my jeep with the top off.
Keep your ideas flowing and your art worK will be great.
