I have been teaching at the same school for18 years with a focus on K-8 Visual Arts and Digital Photograph for grades 10-12. I also have 4 years experience teaching Elementary AIS Math and Reading Enrichment. I am a free lance artist on the side!
I love teaching the visual arts and enjoy working with children of all ages! It is a subject students get very excited about. I am continuously trying new ideas, lessons and mediums to keep everything fresh. I work in a small district and I am lucky enough to have the same students all the way through. Because of this, I am able to create different lessons to spark interest with all individuals. I grade my students on how hard they work and measure the outcomes according to their individual ability. I have also been teaching math to small groups, grade 1-3, for the past 4 years. I continuously create new lessons based upon learning style and what is expected of our students these days. In 2015, I was part of a team that corrected the NYS math exams. This was also a learning experience for me to better understand how students think as well of expectations that are put on our children.
Yet to be added
I received my Associates Degree in Photography and Graphic Design at a local college, a BFA at Castleton State College, where I became certified in K-12 Art and Pre K-6 General Ed Elementary Educator as well. I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Plattsburgh State. I come from a family of artists and it has been my passion my entire life!
I am new to TPT as of February 2017 and very excited to get started. I create my own lessons in detail for better understanding. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer. There are many more to come. Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments: email@example.com I designed my own artwork, layouts and logos myself. This is also another area I would like to focus on with TPT.
