Lily M. Rubio

Jr. Kindergarten–Eighth Grade Art Teacher

Appointed in 2004

I chose to teach at St. George because of its quality and family-unit environment.  The education at St. George is developmentally appropriate for the stages of early childhood, elementary, and middle school years. Ultimately, my goal everyday is to see all my students achieve a disciplined, synthesizing, creative, respectful, and ethical mind.  I practice positive thinking everyday and listen to every child’s needs.  Apply yourself and succeed.  The arts address multiple intelligences.

In my spare time I paint, like to travel and enjoy spending time with my daughter who is currently pursuing a nursing degree.
