• About Mrs. Minoski:

    Mrs. Minoski grew up in South Jersey.  After graduating from Seton Hill University in Greensburg, PA, she moved to North Carolina in 2011.  She began her teaching career at the Center for Visual Artists with art-themed Summer Camps and after school programs.  In 2012, she started the school year off at Western Guilford High School.  After six years, Mrs. Minoski was given the opportunity to pursue a career in photography and decided to take it.  She worked for Strawbridge Studios for a year and a half working all over Guilford and Rockingham County.  Returning to teaching, she began by taking several sub-jobs and a long term position, before joining the team at Southwest Middle School in February of 2020.
