Cody Langford » Welcome


I am excited to start my tenth year of teaching here at Blackman Elementary School.  I got my bachelor's degree in Art Education from Middle Tennessee State University.  I received my master's degree in Art Education from Eastern Illinois University.  I have taught in Bedford County Schools and Lebanon Special School District. 
I am looking forward to teaching your children and helping them grow artistically. 
The most important facets of my classroom are :
safety, inclusivity, and creativity

Golden Paintbrush Winners

The art room hosts a competition between the classes in each grade level to see which class is the best behaved. In class, if the students earn more positive points than negative points, they get a star on their chart. The class with the most stars at the end of the nine weeks wins the GOLDEN PAINTBRUSH. This video is the winners for the first nine weeks.
