Mrs. Landsbach was born and raised in Pennsylvania, right outside of Pittsburgh, where her dreams of being an art teacher began. However, once Mrs. Landsbach entered high school and she no longer wanted to be an art teacher. Coincidentally, her art teacher at the time told her that in the future she would be an art teacher. It was not until later in life that Mrs. Landsbach became an art teacher. She already had experience in teaching and realised after having her first son that being an art teacher would be a great fit for her.

At East Haven High School, Mrs. Landsbach is currently teaching only Ceramics 1 for this semester. Next semester, she will be teaching Ceramics 2 and Ceramics and Sculpture. Mrs. Landsbach states that she has future plans for the art community at EHHS. First, she is proposing the idea of a class for Ceramic jewelry and wearable arts for next year. She also mentioned that she has an idea for students who plan on taking their art experience a step further, “I was talking to Mr. Stevens and Mrs. Parisi about seeing what we can do for an AP art program and a portfolio prep program for people wanting to start a business or go to college for art.” The new ideas that Mrs. Landsbach has said that the EHHS art program can be very beneficial to students who take pride in their art and would like to expand their experience with art.
