Advertising Art Director, turned teacher I have taught both as an Elementary Art Specialist and as an Art teacher at the Secondary level. Currently I am an Art teacher at University High School in Spokane Valley, WA.
I often incorporate technology into my lesson plans. I love using QuickTime movies as anticipatory sets to get students engaged and help jump start their creativity I believe art isn't just about the mediums but more importantly about creative problem solving skills. These skills benefit all students, whatever it is they want to become. With Common Core coming through our school systems art can be one of the best places for children to apply math and creative thinking skills.

Working as an Art Director and graphic designer I learned to sell my ideas to people in the business world. As a teacher I have used this skill to help sell kids on the idea of learning. I want students to want to learn. I want them to become successful creative problem-solvers that have their own individual style and point of view.
