I have been teaching Art for 6 years. My experience ranges from teaching Art, Design Technology and even Computing from Pre-K to Grade 12!
I think the kids would describe my teaching style as quiet, calm, organised yet always fun and full of love and rainbows. I love teaching about different cultures and having deeper meanings behind my Art lessons. As I teach Pre-K to Grade 8 I regularly have collaborative art projects between my younger and older pupils.
Fun facts for you...I am freakishly good at mathematics and can problem solve in my head. I won Gold in the all Ireland math challenge ;)
After completing my degree in Architecture in Belfast, Ireland, I spent 2 years working as an Architect before deciding to pursue a career as an Art teacher. I then completed my post graduate degree in Art education and it was the best decision of my life :)
I spent the first 25 years of my life in Ireland growing up among green fields (and plenty of sheep) after which I took a risk and accepted a job teaching abroad in Saudi Arabia. I met my husband here who was also working and this is my 5th year teaching in my international school. I am addicted to my dog Lola, Stranger Things, Brandy balls (that's an Irish candy) cinnamon candles and naps!
