MeetBonnie Shoff – Art Instructor, Kelleys Island School

Mrs. Bonnie Shoff has been teaching art here at Kelleys Island for almost 18 years.. “In 1965 I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Miami University.” From here, she moved directly into the United States Peace Corps. After serving her time over in Africa teaching art, English, and physical education, she returned to America to design greeting cards and gift wrap for Hallmark. “I soon realized that I enjoyed teaching more than sitting at a drawing board.  I returned to Miami University for a Masters Degree in Art Education and an Ohio State teaching certificate.  My first job was teaching Vocational Art at Willoughby South High School,” Mrs. Shoff remarks about her job with Hallmark. In 1978 Mrs. Shoff and her husband moved to Sandusky, where she taught 7th and 8th grade art at St. Mary’s. She held this job until she was moved to full time at Bellevue High School. “After 30 years of teaching I retired in June 2001 and began teaching on Kelleys Island the following September,” she comments about working up here. To this day she is still very enthused to be teaching art here at Kelleys Island.
