Hello! My name is Mr. Poedel and I am happy to be here at Chandler High. I hope to bring passion for not just art and sculpture but also I hope to grow a passion for art and life in each of my students. I look forward to seeing my students grow each year. If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me.

My Education and Professional Background

Two years at Concordia University in Irvine, CA. Three years at the University of Arizona where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art and Visual Culture Education. Taught three years at Walden Grove High School in Sahuarita, Arizona.

My Educational Philosophy

Education is all about the students. They are what make me want to teach. The most exciting thing about teaching is when I am effectively able to facilitate knowledge, creating experience for my students. That experience is marked by the moment of realization, when a students mind stretches and creativity sparks. I motivate my students through relativity. Art is everywhere and in everything. I am just the guide, they are the creator.
