The Warsaw R-IX School District is excited to welcome back Julie Gemes to the middle school teaching staff! "I graduated from Warsaw High School in 1999. I then attended CMSU (now UCM) and earned my BFA in Commercial Art/Graphic Design. After marrying Scott Gemes, my high school sweetheart, Scott and I moved back to Warsaw. I worked at Warsaw High School as a substitute teacher and John Boise Middle School as a paraprofessional for two years before working in banking for many years. During my years at the bank we had a son, Logan, and I worked toward earning my MAT and K-12 Art teaching certification. I have been teaching K-12 Art for nine years, five of which Scott was the principal where I worked and Logan went to school. I am so excited for the opportunity to be teaching middle school art at the school where my love for art began. I believe that every student is an artist. I hope to help each of my students become more comfortable trying new things so they can improve their skills and become even better artist. I am glad to be coming back home with my family all in the same district again." Julie Gemes Welcome back to the Warsaw community and Wildcat Family!
