I have been teaching elementary Visual Arts for 18 years in a suburban public school district.
I believe in building students creative confidence through a hands on, materials focused visual arts program. I use artists, cultures, seasons and the elements of art as my primary motivation for lessons. Additionally, I love challenging students visual literacy. Using the handouts I have designed, I have watched their vocabulary retention increase. It is a balance!
