Mrs. Carlson-Pruch

Hello :) My name is Mrs. Carlson-Pruch. I am one of the Art Specialists at Edward "Babe" Gomez Heritage Elementary School. I have been teaching for Omaha Public Schools since 1996. I wanted to be a teacher since I was six years old. I have always been an artist. When I was two years old and coloring, I fell asleep with crayons in my hand. My passions are Art, History/Social Studies, and Language Arts. My students learn that art is not separate from all other disciplines, but rather that art IS all subjects and teaches us what it means to be human.

I received a Bachelor's of Art in Psychology and Art Education K-12 from Dana College in 1997 and my Master's of Science in Special Populations in Education (ESL & Special Education) at Creighton University in 2007. I have trained with Nature Explore and instruct in our Outdoor Classrooms.

To create one's own world in any of the arts takes courage. ~Georgia O'Keeffe
