TEACHING EXPERIENCE

High School Art Teacher for almost a decade. Subjects taught: Art I, Drawing II, Painting 1,2,3, Sculpture 1,2,3, Ceramics 1,2,3, Certified to teach AP 3D Design. I currently write secondary Art curriculum for all the above categories including mixed media and printmaking, Teacher trainer at multiple state TAEA conventions. Prior to teaching I was an environmental graphic designer.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a firm believer that ALL students can learn to do great art, and my formula for that is: Relevant project + Step by Step instructions with visuals = success. I differentiate for my students by providing one on one modeling of a technique to meet their needs. I use a research to side teach conferring model. I take a moment to research their needs, I compliment their strengths, I choose a teaching point to model and I walk away with a link as to how that can be used in future projects in that medium. I'm teaching the student to be an independent, higher level thinker that builds on what he has just learned.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was awarded a gold medal from Scholastic Nationals due to one of my painting students receiving that award. 3D curriculum writer / director at Katy ISD.
