TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I feel like I've been in education all of my life. My parents were both teachers and I grew up listening and watching them as they prepared for the classroom. My first experience was at a Pre-School helping out teachers. I eventually became a substitute teacher in the public schools and did this for about 5 years. I have been teaching full time now for 14 years. This year I am excited to be the specialist Art teacher for my track partners.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I like to integrate subject matter as much as possible. I also became aware of multiple intelligences a few years ago and enjoy trying to fit a lesson to meet multiple styles of learning.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.A. in Liberal Studies and a Masters in Childhood Literacy. I started off my career also as an Art Student and attended Art Center for a bit. I enjoy infusing lessons with Art when possible.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I enjoy taking care of my elderly mom and my two dogs Theo and Matisse. I love to make things, probably why I am here creating lessons :) I also enjoy cooking and taking care of the plants. I enjoy the Arts.
