Mrs. April Maldonado

Hi Robinson, I am Mrs. Maldonado, the art teacher. I started at Robinson in 1998 and there is nothing better than spending the day with Roadrunners! My husband Omar and I have been married for 22 years, we have Adreanne, 27, Christian, 20, Solis, 14 and Elijah, 11. Adreanne married Jake Summers which is how we kicked off our 2022 summer. Shortly after they moved to Pennsylvania. Christian is a junior at Florida State University, Solis is a Freshman at KHS and Eli is in 6th grade at Nipher. As a family, we enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, sporting events and cultural celebrations around the St. Louis area. Teaching art is exciting every day. I love coming up with new ideas to motivate kids. I am a firm believer that making art is not all about creation and product. Art is about developing creative thinking and problem solving skills as well as making and doing. These are important skills every student needs for their future work and careers. Each year we put all of the above into a full school art show that opens the week prior to spring break.
