Mrs. Motsch grew up in Grinnell, IA. After she graduated, she studied Art Therapy at Grand View University. By the second semester of her freshman year, she had switched to Art Education. Once she graduated, she married her husband Joshua Motsch, who works in Des Moines for Social Security Disability Determination. They now live in Polk City.
Mrs. Motsch taught three years before coming to Boone High School at Perry Middle School.
“I really like the cafe and the technology opportunities the school offers,” Motsch states when asked about her first impression of Boone High. She says she has been welcomed warmly by fellow teachers and students and is excited to be a part of the Toreador Way.
“My first impression of Mrs. Motsch was that she was like a breath of fresh air! I love how she thinks ‘outside the box" - she's very creative, extremely talented, and just a wonderful person to work with! I just love her!’ says Motsch’s fellow art partner, Mrs. Pomerenk. “I love my room and that I have a partner in art. Mrs. Pomerenk is the best partner I could ask for,” said Motsch in reply.
This year, Mrs. Motsch is looking forward to the art conference. “It is being held at Boone this year, and I am excited to be a part of it.”
Boone High is looking forward to what Mrs. Motsch will accomplish this year.
