Emma K. Jebe
artist & Art Teacher
My name is Emma Jebe.
I am from Central Illinois, and I currently live in Champaign.
I am 24 years old. I spent the summers of 2014, 2015, 2016 working as a summer camp art director. During the summer of 2019, I worked as an assistant day camp director.
My interests are centered around creating educational experiences that support students’ curiosity, independence, agency, and interest in their own education. My goal is to inspire students to pursue their own questions. I aim to create possibilities in which students are able to construct knowledge for themselves. My curriculum grows as my students’ interests and experiences expand.
I graduated from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign with a BFA in Art Education in May 2018.
I am currently pursuing my MA in Art Education at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and expect to graduate December 2019.
