I have been teaching K-3 for the past 6 years. I have taught in both French Immersion and English settings.
Art is my passion and I love watching students create something they are truly proud of. I have created products to help students succeed at drawing and writing. I have found that often if students have the initial shape to start out with they are able to more easily add details and maintain perspective. When students start out on their own they often draw the head or body too small and then they get frustrated trying to add on to it. With a little help they and a framework to start from they are able to draw with ease!

I studied Visual Arts and first got my Bachelor of Fine Arts before going into teaching. I have a Bachelor of Education specializing in Primary Education.
I teach on Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada. It is beautiful here, come visit! Miss Elephant
