Hi! I am Jelena (pronounced: Yeh-le-nuh), 12th grade art teacher. I grew up in Serbia, which is where I went to high school. I received my undergraduate degree at Royal Academy of Art in the Netherlands, and my masters at SUNY Albany. I first taught art in Dallas at two of the most diverse schools in the country. I worked with students from all around the world, and then moved to San Diego to work with charter schools. For the past four years I have been teaching art at San Diego Cooperative Charter school. I am thrilled to join such a passionate and ambitious team of educators at HTH and help our seniors discover their passions and ways to express themselves creatively.
