I've taught art since 1997. I have experience at all levels, but I have focused at the high school level. I have taught digital arts (graphic design, digital photography, video production, 3D modeling and art for game design) at an art magnet high school since 2004.
I believe that teaching should be balanced with learning and having fun. So in my class we all know the importance of learning the given assignment, but we also take a few minutes to joke or laugh. My classes are 75 minutes long, and usually all of that is in front of a computer screen, so having a few minutes to take a break from the seriousness of the assignments keeps my kids motivated and it gives me a chance to talk with them as a person (not just the giver of knowledge).
Art department chair at an art magnet high school since 2007.
Bachelors in Art Education (BAE) Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT)
I'm married and a mother of two young ladies. We live in the country and enjoy the peace and harmony nature provides.
