TEACHING EXPERIENCE

As long as I can remember I have been a creative person. Beginning early on I was always involved in arts and crafts projects at home and in school. At the age of 13 I began more formal training taking varying classes in illustration, commercial art and crafts. At the age of 16 I began on the job training in commercial art. I continued my education at California State University Long Beach receiving a Bachelors Degree in Art. After receiving my Art degree I went to work for an Advertising agency. I began as a graphic designer and worked my way up to an Art Director. After working in an advertising agency for more than 15 years I decided I wanted to do something more worthwhile. I had a teacher who really a positive role model in high school. I began volunteering in her graphic design class working with the students on projects. After volunteering for two years I decided I wanted to go back to school to get my teaching credential. After I received my , I began teaching in middle school. I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade Language Arts, Social Studies and Read 180. I have also taught 7th and 8th grade art. After teaching at middle school I moved on to teaching art at the high school level. I teach all levels of art including Art 1, Art 2, Art 3, Art 4, AP, Computer Graphics and Yearbook. I hope to be a good influence and inspiration to my students.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I just went through training in Explicit Direct Instruction and I really like it. I have been using the direct instruction methods plus many more. I am a fairly easy going teacher. I love my students and want them all to feel that I am interested in them. I also have a strict set of rules they must follow with a set of consequences if they misbehave. Because they are treated fairly in my room, when they get in trouble they understand that the consequences.
