TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have over 20 years as both a lead teacher and a teaching artist. I have taught in elementary, middle, and high schools, both public and private. I have also conducted art and writing workshops for adults. Other settings in which I have taught include museums, community centers, camps, libraries, festivals, in homes and private studios and even outdoors! I was the head of the art department at Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts Camp and School for over a decade. I hold an MFA in Writing and a Master of Arts (MAT) in Teaching Art.

MY TEACHING STYLE

While my educational focus has been in the arts, primarily in visual arts and creative writing, my pedagogy embodies a deeper, global dimension. This enables my students to develop not only themselves, but to see beyond themselves—in essence, to embrace the communal. For example, I have in recent years developed an arts curriculum called, Art Around the World, in which, while exploring an art form of a different culture, students learn about that culture in a humanistic and collective way. I also incorporate a great deal of Art History in my lesson plans.
