My name is Mr. Avera, but the students call me Mr. A. I am the Music/Art teacher at Sublimity Elementary. I also teach Reading Mastery, and i-Ready. I began as the Choral Director, in 2001, at Southwestern High School and then moved to Laurel County Schools. I recently served on the SBDM here at Sublimity Elementary and am currently on the SBDM at South Laurel High School. 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 children's books called, Ella Minnow Peed and Ella Minnow and the New Fish. For more information about me or my ministries or book click here.
