My name is Mr. Avera, but the students call me Mr. A. I am the Visual and Performing Art teacher, as well as Spanish, Reading and Writing Intervention at Sublimity Elementary. I am also in-charge of the i-Ready intervention program. I began as the Choral Director, in 2001, at Southwestern High School and then moved to Laurel County Schools. I currently serve on the SBDM here at Sublimity Elementary. I have taught music in three different elementary schools in Laurel County. I earned my Bachelors in Music Education (2001) from Eastern Kentucky University as well as my Masters in Music (2003). I also earned my Education Specialist degree in Principal from The University of the Cumberlands. Outside of school I am the Student and Worship Pastor at Hart Baptist Church and a First-degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. I am also a published author of two childrens books called, Ella Minnow Peed and Ella Minnow and the New Fish. For more information about me or my ministries or book click here.
