I have been in classrooms from Kindergarten - 12th grade, both in helping and teaching. Recently, I was hired on as a full-time ART TEACHER! My dream has come true. I'm looking forward to working at two lovely schools, teaching students about art in the world around us!
As an artist, I encourage the use of imagination in all areas of learning. When I am working with children, I try to accommodate for all learning abilities.
Currently, the accepted publishing of my thesis, The Relevancy of Art Education in the Cognitive Development of At-Risk Youth.
I have a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History. I also have a MAT in Art Education (K-12). My capstone/thesis was on the The Relevancy of Art Education in the Cognitive Development of At-Risk Youth. Certified in Middle Grades Mathematics and Middle Grade Science.
As a mom, I believe that providing my childre with a well-rounded education from an early age, is my responsibility. Paired with my design background, I incorporate my education degree to create activities and games that I can use to teach my son as he grows, while sharing my ideas with other educators.
