As an Art Teacher I like my students to always be creating. When they complete a project early I have them working independently on other activities. Gimp or Plastic Lacing seems to be a favorite however I do not have the time to teach each student.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a retired Art Educator and have 27 years of teaching Fine Arts in Middle and Elementary School.

MY TEACHING STYLE

The visual arts have a potential to reach every child. A creative work force is essential for our future sustainability. Art educators in our schools are essential in producing a compassionate and innovative next generation. Art Teachers must teach with consideration to individual differences and bring to the classroom the avenues and skills to help them to discover their individual creativity thus creating a strong creative workforce in our society. -Moderate TAB Teaching Style-
