Hello, my name is Michelle Pugh and I love being a part of the SVA family. I have been working
with children for 23 years. I was born and raised in California and taught K-8 art in San Diego.
When my youngest left for college I decided to make the move to Phoenix to be near family.
This is my fifth year teaching at Sun Valley Academy and I really enjoy getting to know the
scholars and families. I am the proud mother of two sons, and one furry son we adopted from
the shelter. In my free time I like to run, watch documentaries, visit art museums and work on
my art. I look forward to a great creative year helping your scholars grow as artists!
