TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a multi-disciplinary artist and full time K-4 art teacher at a charter school in Los Angeles. This collaboration fuels my own artwork, which naturally feeds back into what I bring to the students. I received an MA of Art Education from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014. My thesis work about Arts Integration and Eco-Art Education was published in 2016 in the national journal Art Education, in an article entitled “The Way the Light Hits a Web,” consequently quoted in the U.S. Department of Education’s quarterly newsletter.

MY TEACHING STYLE

• Highly energetic and enthusiastic visual art educator with playful sense of humor empowered by bringing holistic art experiences to young children • Expressive performer and inspiration guide with experience in music, movement, acting and improvisation • Strong classroom management, communication and interpersonal skills • Eco-Art Education and arts integrated instruction • Shares work of past and contemporary artists, including sharing of personal artwork • Creates unique multi-arts integrated units incorporating creative writing, music and movement into visual art realm • "Community Group" leader, creating school wide art and enrichment collaborative projects/visuals as school gathers together monthly in multi/mixed aged level groups
