Ms. Lori Goetz, Art Teacher

email Ms. Goetz

Ms. Goetz has been teaching art to kindergarten through 12th grade students for 18 years.  She began teaching at Gonzales in 2015 and currently teaches art to all grades at GCS.

She holds a Master’s in Art Education from Buffalo University in New York and a Master’s in Art Therapy and Counseling from Buffalo State College in New York and Southwestern College in New Mexico.  Ms. Goetz is also a Licensed Professional Counselor.

Her art career began as a commercial artist.  She then realized that she wanted more meaning in her work and more fun.  It was then she decided that teaching art would be perfect. 

She grew up in Rome, New York and visited Santa Fe about 15 years ago to pursue an Art Therapy degree.  Santa Fe felt like home the minute she drove in!  She loves the mountains and all the sunshine, hiking, skiing, and biking.
