I graduated college in the spring of 2016 with a double major in Art and Education. I have sense then taught Jr high and High school art in a poverty stricken school district. I have spoken at my state art conference and have shared my Advanced art "TAB" with several teachers who have since become a great group of peers. I hope to build this group of peers as I share my lessons and work.
I have built a "Scaffold" into my curriculum. This "Scaffold" builds on new and prior knowledge, just like anyone's, however its overall goal is to build on their courage. I am a strong believer in the ability of art to build a young adult's courage and excitement for learning. I even grade my students with this as my goal. My grading focuses less on their abilities and more on their courage to step out of their comfort zones and come into my art room as an artist.
