Mr. Milan Chisam

Hello, My name is Mr. Milan Chisam. This is my 18th year teaching Art at Gainesville JH/HS. I love teaching students art in Gainesville - GO BULLDOGS!

I was born and raised in Gainesville, MO and love living and teaching in such a beautiful part of the U.S. I am a proud 1997 graduate of Gainesville High School. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Missouri State University in 2003, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Later I earned my teacher certification from MSU and Drury University. Also, I am currently a sponsor for the GHS Art Club. Outside of school hours, I am a freelance artist and I also preach for a local church. My family and I love traveling and enjoying the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and sightseeing.

I love the daily opportunities and challenges that being an artist and teacher has allowed me to pursue and achieve. Being able to impact the lives of students in my hometown and help them to realize the benefits and opportunities that creativity and art can bring into their lives is extremely rewarding.
