TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I’ve been a substitute teacher on and off since 2001, specializing in grades TK-5th. I’ve taught two moderate-severe autistic classes, served as a long-term substitute for a TK class, have worked with elementary-aged students in after-school programs, and I teach independent art camps during school breaks. I currently teach music history to kindergarteners through The Bay Area Music Project, an amazing after-school program that teaches elementary school students to play instruments.

MY TEACHING STYLE

All of my lessons are relevant and modern to keep students engaged and excited. Lessons are based on modern pop culture and focus on legendary figures such as David Bowie, The Ramones, Aretha Franklin, etc. They promote fairness, equality, diversity, and social justice. My lessons are designed for grades TK-5th; however, middle schoolers and high schoolers will also enjoy them. I recognize that not all students learn the same way, so I include notes for students with different learning styles. I include reflection questions and resources to drive home key concepts for greater impact and lesson retention.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Voted "Best Artist," Alameda Magazine, 2014. I hold a 30-day substitute permit.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor's Degree, San Jose State University, studying art/general studio practice with an emphasis in darkroom photography; cum laude / Associate's Degree, College of the Sequoias, Visalia, Calif.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I’m known as “Ms. Y.” to my students. I’ve worked as a substitute teacher for the Alameda Unified School District since 2015 and have become connected with school communities all over the island of Alameda. I volunteer my time and crafting skills to PTA events, fundraisers, and other charitable causes. I enjoyed a short career in museum education in Fresno and San Jose, CA. In addition to teaching art to kids, I love re-creating Mid-Century craft projects with grown-ups, and I curate gallery shows at InkBlot Gallery, where I am a co-owner.
