I have taught both high school and middle school art. I currently teach middle grades and offer painting classes on the weekends and during the summer.
I was taught art by some amazing art teachers and I try to emulate them. Classroom management is essential but so is a daily smile and a sense of humor. When former students say they miss making art in my class it makes my day.
2016 County Fine Arts Educator of the Year, 2015 Teacher of the Year, My paintings were exhibited at the Hickory Museum of Art in 2006.

While in the Marines I was required to teach other Marines how to qualify on the rifle range. I enjoyed the process of teaching and helping others improve. After college I combined my love of art and teaching. See art made by my students here...http://theartclassmuseum.blogspot.com/
