4 years of high school classroom experience as well as 1 year of middle school. I spent 1 year as a substitute teacher in between. Currently teaching Visual Art Comprehensive, Ceramics 1, Ceramics 2, Ceramics 3, Sculpture 1, and AP 3D design.
I am a strong believer in using humor in the classroom. We have a BLAST every day, but we are working at a fast pace. If something looks "off", I do not feel the slightest bit of guilt in calling students out. While my classroom has an atmosphere of fun and excitement, my curriculum is rigorous. My expectations? High. I give students blunt, but honest feedback and encourage them to give the same level of thorough feedback to their peers. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to explore art media.
I have received various awards and recognition for my artwork, including Best in Show and the Mcclure-Scanlan Award at the Hal. B. Rhodes Art Exhibition in Dahlonega, GA.
BS in Art Education from North Georgia College & State University.
I have been making and selling art for over 10 years.
