Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Berdysz


My name is Lara Berdysz and I teach art to fourth and fifth grade students at East Woods. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Art from Bowling Green State University and my Master's Degree in Education from Ursuline College. Before graduating from Ursuline, I was fortunate enough to complete my student-teaching experience here in Hudson at McDowell Elementary. I had a wonderful time while here and knew that I would some day make my way back. I began teaching in 2007 and this year will be my fifth year teaching in Hudson. 

I strive to give my students a well-rounded art experience. Focusing not only on the art making process but also art history and art appreciation. We will be learning about many artists, styles, and media this year and I am looking forward to it. 

I love spending time with my husband and daughters (ages 3 and 6). We do many things together as a family; riding bikes in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, cheering for our favorite sports teams, and eating ice cream are a few of our favorites:)

I can't wait to meet all of you and get creative in the art room!
