Dedicated to making art infused resources and activities for all classrooms. Making life easier for teachers and learning fun for kids is my goal! I started my art teaching career in Charlottesville, Virginia at a middle school where I taught grade 6, 7 and 8 in 2001. I then moved to Arizona in 2008 and am now an elementary school art teacher for grades kindergarten to fifth grade.
