Teaching Art since 2005. Grades taught: K-12. Currently teaching 3-5. I have taught as many as 850+ students in a school year.
A great art lesson begins with an exciting project. If I find joy in creating a piece of art, my students will as well. By covering a wide range of art styles, techniques and media, students will be engaged and excited about the creative process. I love incorporating history and different cultures in my art lessons and so do my students. I strive to create lessons that challenge my students abilities and make them think, and they love it!
Nominated multiple times for Teacher of the Year. Won various competitions for my own personal paintings, drawings and chalk art contests.
