I am a certified art teacher for the states of PA, CT, and NY. I have taught in Baltimore, MD at an inner city high school for one year before my school shut down. I attended the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where I honed my teaching skills. My student teaching experience ranged from elementary and middle school, allowing me to have experience at all different grade levels. I taught Technology and Animation for two years at a school for extremely emotionally disturbed students, then for two years, I worked as the visual art teacher for an elementary school for grades K-6. Currently, I have switched back to high school and work with grades 9-12.
I was taught to make everything as cross-curricular and creative as possible. One thing I love to do is try to make things relevant to today, or use projects that former teachers of mine have used on me, especially if it was a great project or idea. I love to also open up discussion and debate if the project warrents.
