    About Mr. Stevens

    This is my 20th year teaching art here at MAMS. I sketch daily and love to paint. I illustrated two children’s books.. I also play the guitar (not particularly well) and enjoy kayaking, camping and Star Wars! This is the Way!  Mrs. Stevens is my wife and she also teaches here at MAMS. .My daughter Hannah is going to the 9th grade this September and my son Roddy is going into his first year of middle school.  They have the same concerns as you about starting a year during very strange times.  We will get through this together.
