Miss Frances A. Viden

Hello! My name is Frances Viden and I am the Lead Art Teacher for Danville Public Schools. This is my twenty-second year at George Washington High School. I teach  Ceramics 1 and 2, as well as Visual Arts I.

I grew up in NewJersey, about ten minutes away from Philadelphia. I graduated from Woodbury High School in 1996, and went to Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ for two years. In my third year, I transferred to West Virginia University, where I graduated in 2002 with my BFA with Certification. I am currently pursuing my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Radford University.

After graduation, I moved to Danville, where I began my teaching career. I also worked at Office Max in the printing department from 2004- 2018. 

I have two sons, Alex and Max, who attend school in the city as well.

If you can't find me, look where there are roller coasters and coffee - I should be close by!
