TEACHING EXPERIENCE

8 years as a Visual Arts instructor 5 years as a Visual Arts Department Chair

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classroom emphasizes more student-centered learning. Although I like to define the theories, principles, concepts and/or terms that the student needs to learn within my classroom, I feel it is important as an Art teacher to allow active learning, student-to-student collaboration and problem solving.
