Back to School

Hi! My name is Mrs. Alvarez I am so excited to be teaching art at Makowski this year. I have so many wonderful lessons planned for this school year. Besides using our computers to create art we are also going to create art with found materials. I can’t wait to meet everyone. The 2020-2021 year will start my 14th year as a teacher for Buffalo Public Schools.


I will be working with Makowski students on C and E days. I will be working with students at Lorraine Elementary for the rest of the days in the cycle.


Feel free to email me if you have any questions or need my help.

My email is I will also be holding office hours regularly on C and E days from 9:30 to 10:00 and from 3:30 to 4:00. The link for my office hours team is:
