I have had opportunities to grow and learn from each teaching experience. I taught, fundamentals of Art, Clay, Art & Technology, Fine Arts and developed my own photography program (1, 2, 3 & 4) at (9-12) H.S level. I also taught Community Based Instructions (CBI) for high school and middle school. I taught Art Class in K-5 for 5 years and am currently teaching M.S.(7-8) Visual Arts, Crafts and Health.
My teaching style is structured, open and engaging. I want each student to have many opportunities to exlpore, discover and grow with each lesson/unit. I enjoy connecting activities to their life and environment, as well as connecting to the world, many cultures and issues that effect humans.
I am a board member of the Windward Artist Guild (WAG).
