I am first and foremost an educator. How I choose to educate students and prepare them to be productive members of society is through art. I feel most at home in an urban setting teaching middle school aged students, however my lessons include adaptations to include enrichment activities for higher grades/gifted students or accommodations for younger graders/special needs/English as a Second Language students.
