I had been teaching for 5 years in the state of PA and found that many of my lessons had great overall success. I try to always augment the lesson so that they are ever evolving. Enriching the lives of so many children truly brings joy to my heart. I wake up each day and smile knowing what i get to do.
I have always been a firm believer in student success at their own hands. When I inspire a child through a lesson i always begin with telling them that no 2 artworks should look alike. When i teach i am engaging the students through excitement, visual aids and my own personal art (or attempt at it) as an exemplar. I have found most students will take to a lesson better when they see you producing something right in front of them. Students need to be engaged and i always have follow-up lessons for those that finish early.
I have had numerous students achieve awards on the local, state and national level. The projects i design and their talents make a great mix. Personally i have not received any teaching awards as Art teachers are easily overlooked for things like that as our successes are measured by student talent, not a standardized test.
BFA from West Chester University in Graphic Design. Post Bacc Certification Moore College of Art and Design. Various post bacc. classes at University of the Arts Philadelphia Pa.
I love teaching art to everyone. I develop lessons for my classes at the school as well as other programs i operate with. Mostly non-profit ventures for disadvantaged youth. I love nature and am an avid fly fisherman. Always remember "ART ROCKS!".
