Hello!  I am Tamara Carpenter and I am the Art Teacher at SSE.  I came to South Smithfield Elementary back in 1998, to start the art program.  I am a graduate of North Georgia College, where I recieved my BS in Art Education (K-12).

I love art and I love children so I think teaching art is perfect!!
