TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching art at the middle school level for 31 years. I have also taught summer art classes to elementary age students in years past. In addition to my teaching experiences, I was a 4-H leader in the area of arts and crafts for a period of 9 years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I consider myself to be an educator with "old school" values. I work very hard to develop and organize art lessons that align with curriculum standards and will interest my middle school art students. Within my classroom, I adhere to high expectations, structure, and routine which, in turn, creates a positive learning environment for my students. I recognize and reward positive efforts and make parent contact immediately for disruptive behaviors that occur within the classroom. I respect each and every student that enters my art room and create a classroom environment that is welcoming, inviting, and cheerful. I am happy to say, after 31 years of teaching Art, that I still get excited as I observe my students transform blank pieces of paper into creative works of art.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Throughout my 31 years of teaching, I have been recognized a number of times for a variety of teaching accomplishments. The honor for which I am most proud, was being named Teacher of the Year in Kent County Maryland.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I graduated from West Virginia University in 1986 with a BFA in Art. In addition, I have accumulated enough graduate credits over my 30 year career to obtain a master's equivalent. I am certified to teach art to students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
