While working as a high school/middle school paraprofessional at a performing arts school, I began creating study guides for students in our special education program. However, we quickly discovered ALL students could benefit from the visuals! Soon, teachers from different grades and subjects were requesting custom cartoon visuals to assist students. Teachers loved having something they could save for future use and students seemed to enjoy the quirky style. I especially love taking on projects for "hard-to-find" visual materials such as Catcher in the Rye, The Piano Lesson, The Breadwinner... Subjects: Science, history, language arts/literature, arts/specials, Christian themed, social skills/autism.
My products and teaching styles are quirky and creative with an emphasis on Multiple Learning Styles and diversity. I create educational clip art, visuals, creative study guides and projects.
