Ms. Rylee Garand
Hi there, thanks for stopping by!
My name is Rylee Garand, one of the art teachers here at Charlotte High. I was born in Chicago, IL and moved to Punta Gorda when I was nine years old. I graduated from CHS in 2015 and went on to pursue art at a small private school, Lakeland University, located in Sheboygan, WI where I also played collegiate softball. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design and Studio Art. I'm a dog momma of two, an english cream golden retriever & a golden doodle, who I love beyond words. I am a huge family gal & enjoy spending quality time with my favorite people. I'm a sucker for beautiful sunsets, doggy cuddles & rainbows after a thunderstorm.
The act of creating is the best form of self-expression. I am eager and honored to be able to inspire my students to be as creative as their minds will allow & to always have fun while doing it. The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.
