TEACHING EXPERIENCE

~ Elementary art teacher for eight years ~
Growing up I've always loved doing anything creative, and now I have a job where I help kids with just that. I have been an art teacher in both the private and public school setting and have worked with students up through eighth grade. I currently teach grades PK-4.

MY TEACHING STYLE

~Interdisciplinary~ ~Student led~
Art lessons in my classroom are full of hands on visual problem solving. Students are given the resources they need to succeed and are encouraged to experiment and explore, and most of all creativity is valued! Our finished projects follow the assignment criteria while still all looking original. Students also experience art history and writing in my class. Creative decisions are explained so they can understand how they are thinking, which is so important to the art making process.
