Brooke Boggs
Welcome!  My name is Brooke Boggs and my pronouns are she/her.  Newport Grammar is my elementary alma mater and I'm so proud to be back here as a teacher!  This year starts the thirteenth year that I've been teaching at Newport Grammar School as the Visual Arts teacher.  Five years ago, I became the school's English as a Second Language teacher, as well.  I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from East Tennessee State University in 2008 and my Master's degree in English as Second Language from Carson-Newman University in 2019.  I believe every student is an artist and every student no matter their language, beliefs, or cultures are a welcome and valuable part of my classroom!  I believe we are constantly learning and growing and why I believe diversity, equity, and inclusion are foundational building blocks in my classroom.
Supply Wish List


Because we will be limiting shared supplies for students, the following are recommended for your virtual student.

You can use crayons, scissors, glue, pencils, etc. from your classroom teacher but for art please purchase a watercolor palette so your student will have an individual paint set.  I recommend the "Crayola Washable Watercolor 8 Color Set" that Walmart carries for $1.97.  They have sets with more colors that are fine to purchase but I would like them to have at least the 8 color set, please.  (Please also reference the "Welcome Video" in Google Classroom to review the art supplies I sent home in your art packets.)



- Clorox or Lysol Wipes

- Alcohol Wipes

- Various Size Ziplock Bags (snack, sandwich, quart, and gallon sizes) 



For more suggestions, check out the Amazon Wish List below that is combined for Art and ESL.  You are very appreciated!

ART:  Students will be joining their homeroom or cohort's Google Classroom for assignments.  Art will look slightly different this year compared to years past in that students may need to complete some work outside of class in addition to the requirements in class.


ESL:  Students will access Google Classroom for assignments.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on ClassDojo or through email at
