I have been teaching high school art students since 1998. I teach all levels of drawing and painting. I also teach art appreciation, introductory art, and Advanced Placement studio art. I sponsor art club, NAHS and Green Alliance. My students decorate nearly all of the bulletin boards in the high school on a regular basis.
I am a DBAE teacher. I focus more on the process part of artmaking with my students. My goal as an educator is for my students to embrace the joy of art-making. I encourage exploration, problem-solving, and media practice as a way to master media.
