I worked for five years as a public middle school art teacher. I also spent several summers teaching art and craft lessons to K-12 students.
I focus all of my art lessons on engaging students' critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. I like to give them freedom to make independent choices about the creation of their final project, within the perimeters of the assignment.

I took a break from classroom teaching to pursue the personal goals of attending pastry school and starting a family. Currently, I am spending days with my 5 month old son, and I can't wait until he's ready to be up to his little elbows in paint and clay!
