Mrs. Stephanie Risden

Hello Bullpup Artist & Families! I am so honored to join the Bullpup family as your art teacher! I am excited about all the messes and masterpieces we will create during our  22-23 school year. 

I am originally from Jackson, New Jersey,  where I graduated from Jackson Memorial High School.   I then  received my Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education from The College of New Jersey in 2002.  This is my 14th year in the field of  art education. As a military spouse, I have lived and taught in several different states, including New Jersey , New York, Kentucky and Virginia.  I am excited about calling South Carolina my home and cant wait to serve this community. 

I am married to my husband, Richard, who is an Active Duty Army soldier stationed at Fort Jackson.  We are the proud parents of four amazing military children: Melody, Cecilia, Richard Jr & Kadence. We love animals and currently have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 tree frogs and 2 tortoises. When I am not creating messes and masterpieces in the art room, I enjoy crafting, reading, all things Disney, traveling and spending time with my family.  

I am proud to be a BULLPUP and can't wait to meet each of you and see what we can create during  the 22-23 school year!
