I have extensive K-12 and university teaching experience. My teaching career began in Miami-Dade County Public Schools in Miami, Florida, which is known for excellence in art education. I have taught thousands of real world students in a range of school and community settings. In 2003, I fulfilled my dream of becoming a professor and started teaching at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU). As part of my university tenure, I had the opportunity to teach and develop the entire undergraduate curriculum, which has guided students from their freshman through their senior years of study.

Dr. Debrah C. Sickler-Voigt’s Teaching

Learn from Dr. Sickler-Voigt: Workshops, Community Art,

Presentations, Seminars, & University Courses

The courses I have designed include best practices, experiential learning (EXL), and international teaching. My students are highly effective in gaining employment after graduation due to the rigorous professional training they receive—including multiple and varied K-16 teaching opportunities, working with diversified populations, museum education experiences, portfolio development, licensure preparation, and study abroad in Scandinavia (The Scandinavian countries have the top education systems in the world.)
