TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught art to a variety of age ranges. I have worked with under privileged teenagers and private school students. I have taught at the elementary, middle and high school levels. I have also taught private art lessons.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I try to incorporate a number of teaching styles into every lesson so that every type of learner may have the opportunity to connect to something.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have sold commissioned pieces, won art contests and had my art hang in a gallery. I have received best of show award recently in a local gallery contest and am looking forward to doing more contests in the future!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have both a bachelor's degree and an associates. I earned my latest degree as an adult learner, and that was my degree where I majored in visual arts.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Outside of teaching, I am married to a wonderful man and together we have one sweet little girl and are currently expecting baby number two. Additionally, I love creating art in my free time. Every chance I get I try to take time to draw or paint.
