I am a newbie with two years of teaching experience and enjoy working with all grade levels. I have volunteered with several organizations teaching students about art and I am also an artist on my own who focuses on photography and painting.
I am a very enthusiastic teacher who tries to incorporate both freedom and enjoyment in the majority of my projects. To me, art is about learning while having fun and being creative so my lessons and teaching style have elements of each. I also love combining general studies with art and collaborating with other teachers in order to tie art into subjects students are working on in classes such as history, science & math.

I am a somewhat non-traditiona teacher l because I practiced law for two years before having the opportunity to go back to school and fulfill my dream of becoming an art teacher. As a result, I view every day as a gift and love everything about teaching art!
