Madelyn Hruska

My name is Madelyn Hruska and I have been blessed to have been the Art teacher at Riverside since the start of my teaching career. Prior to this I was a paraprofessional in the district for four years. I grew up in Cleveland and attended all Cleveland schools throughout my education, graduating from James Ford Rhodes in 2007. I attended Baldwin Wallace College and attained a Bachelors in Fine Arts with a double minor in Education and Art History.

I always knew I wanted to be teacher and it was at Baldwin Wallace that I realized Art is where my passion truly was. I believe that every child is an artist and that it is through practice and creativity that they are able to retain their artistic abilities.

“I can't think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. Exercising the imagination, experimenting with talents, being creative; these things, to me, are truly the windows to your soul.” ― Bob Ross
