Mandy Covish is a highly experienced K-6 Elementary School Teacher whose passion is teaching children the ARTS. Mandy has studied and taught extensively in the central valley at multiple levels, and will be continuing her work teaching art here in Morro Bay. Currently, Mandy is teaching Kindergarten in Creston. Previously she taught children in the upper grades in the Lucia Mar School District. Over the years, she has worked with children from diverse populations as well as with gifted children.
