My name is Kathy Dahdal and I was an English Language Arts teacher for 15 years in New York City public schools. I served both middle and high school students of all identities and backgrounds in one of the most vibrant, diverse communities in New York City – the Boogie Down Bronx. I was also a Peer Collaborative Teacher (PCT) where I supported and honed teachers’ instructional practices. I lead a laboratory classroom, strategized for adult learning, lead ongoing professional learning, and facilitated individual teacher development through focused coaching. I am currently a high school assistant principal and LOVING my role as an educational leader!

In addition to content creation, I am a clipart/digital art seller. I collaborate with talented artists across the nation. I solicit my ideas and visions to the creators, and they would devise art from them. Once an idea was set into motion, I would obtain the necessary copyright protection (complete and full COPYRIGHT OWNERSHIP of the artwork) and sell them in my own stores. This work has made me proud to have the opportunity to offer an array of art to fellow creators around the globe that not only represents a variety of cultures and art forms, but allows creators to use my art in their creative projects. I, Kathy Dahdal, owner of Queen's Clipart Gallery and Queen's Educational Resources, am the only Copyright Owner and authorized seller of ALL clipart/artwork on this store. Besides education, I enjoy spending time with my family and dogs, snuggling on the couch and watching movies and shows, exercising, cooking, taking long walks, and reading novels where I can escape into a whole new reality.
