Mrs. Emily Hearne


I am so excited about starting my fourth year here at Coder Elementary as the art teacher on campus! I am so grateful to be here in Aledo and to be a part of this wonderful program here with your little ones.

I will be teaching my students the elements of art, different mediums and how to utilize them, as well as the care of their art supplies. We will also be learning about different artists, cultures, and the movements throughout art's history. 

A little bit about my professional experience is that I am a graduate of Tarleton State University and a graduate of Texas Tech University with a Masters degree in Art Education (Wreck 'Em!). I began teaching six years ago and I have taught in both Boyd ISD and Weatherford ISD as a middle school art teacher. Before I began teaching, I was a paraprofessional here in Aledo at the DNGC and I am so excited to have made my way back into this wonderful district! I have loved art since the young age of 7 and I am thrilled to share my passion as an educator.

Aside from my love of art, I also have a love of animals! I currently have 17 chickens, 3 horses (Doc, Sea Sea and Dandy) and  two dogs (Gus and Scout). They all hold a very special place in my heart and I am sure they will come up in classroom conversations many times throughout the year!

I am also married to my wonderful husband, Mat, and we were blessed with our first child, Andrew, a year ago.  

I can't wait to see all of my students and to show them the great little artists they can be! Looking forward to the 2022-2023 school year!
