I noticed that my students loved to make "cootie catchers" and "fortune tellers." I decided to use this idea to make a review game. Students can color, cut, and fold their papers to create the cootie catcher, and then they will review primary

I used this activity to discourage the use of black and gray shadows, in favor of using many colors to mix a cool shadow. This project allows students to draw their own conclusion rather than telling them what to do. Students are asked to copy a

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

k-12 Certified in Art, k-5 certified in gen-ed 5+ years at the High School Level- Drawing, Painting, Art Fundamentals, Mixed Media, AP Art History 3+ years in Middle School 3+ years k-5 1+ years at pre K Several years with special ed and nursing home populations

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am a k-12 certified art teacher that is especially concerned with having students make connections across the curriculum. I have taught everything from pre-K to AP art History. I am firmly rooted in UBD, and I love having kids ask big questions about art and about the larger world around them!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I'm a bit of a shy gal, so I'm not big on applying for major awards. I'd rather let my kids' art shine! I've been chosen to write curriculum for several districts- including ones where I don't teach. My curriculum has been used as the template for others to work from! Not an award, but I consider it a big honor! My personal artwork has been shown in several small art galleries.
