Jayde Loya has called Central Oregon her home since 2008. Growing up in the area, she loves all the outdoor activities and social activities the area has to offer, especially hiking trails. She is currently working to complete her Bachelor of Arts in English for Secondary Education and has over 10 years of experience in Art, Music, and Theatre. She has extensive experience in a variety of art programs, which allows her to provide students with a well-rounded art experience, not limited to drawing and painting. I am inspired by the talent these students have and their abilities to create original and exciting projects that never cease to amaze me. I am a firm believer in the power that arts programs can offer students. I am proud to be a part of these students’ experience at the Academy at Sisters.
