TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I was a professional graphic artist and university administrator for 20+ years before becoming a high school graphic arts technical education teacher. I taught graphic design, offset printing technology, copy center management, and photography in a lab setting at a vocational high school. I now freelance as a designer.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that creativity and a structured environment help students, reach their maximum potential. It was very important to me to give my students real-world experience so our copy center and graphic design lab was open to the public. Every job was a lesson. I also made a concerted effort to work current events, art history and writing into assignments. As a professional graphic artist, I've had to write copy, edit copy and fact check for my bosses and my clients. Students need to be prepared to do the same.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Numerous graphic design awards 1979 thru 1987. Technical Teacher of the Year - 2007.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design and Advertising. 60 credit hours of technical education classes. Certified Adobe Photoshop and InDesign instructor.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been married for 28 years and have two adult sons who show no interest in graphic design or computers... except when theirs are broken. I am a breast cancer survivor! My husband and I participate in the local Susan G. Komen races. Our team name is The DEADLY TA TA's. (I have an off-the-wall sense of humor!)
