Art teachering is so rewarding! I am thankful that I can be inspired by seeing all the wonderful artwork my students create.I am a Nationally Board Certified Teacher in Special Education. I also have a Gifted Ed endorsement and an Art Ed credential. I have been teaching for 16 years. Currently, I am teaching K-5 art in Northern California! : )
