I have been teaching various subjects in Elementary Education since 2000. My specialty is Arts and Language.
My teaching style is relaxed, funny, fast-paced, with lots of fun and interesting stories. I also am sort of a ham in my class, so just to keep them having a good time, sometimes I sing spontaneously, tell silly stories about myself, or dance around, etc.

I love being an Art teacher. It allows me to be creative and playful with my students. No one expect the Art teacher to be too serious and that lends itself to some fun and exciting moments in the classroom. I love to dress up and put on a show for my students. I am always amazed by the level of skill that my children show, even from a young age and even those who aren't as gifted at art, can find joy in the experience.
