Shirely Bennett

From a very early age, I have always had a great love for the Arts, with specific emphasis on Visual Art.  Throughout my childhood, elementary, middle, and high school, art was my passion.  As a result of my great love for the arts, I graduated from Alabama State University with a degree in Arts Education, K-12.  For the past 30+ years, it has been a joy of mine teaching Visual Art to students in the Selma City School System. I currently teach Visual Art to students at Selma High School.  I enjoy helping the students find their creative voices and develop their hidden talents in the Arts.  In my spare time, I enjoy a wide range of activities. When I am away from the classroom, I enjoy reading, gardening, singing, playing piano & bass guitar, writing songs, cooking, baking, and auto mechanics.
