Hello My Name Is...
I am very excited and ready to start this upcoming school year as your child’s new art teacher!
I moved to Phoenix just a little over two years ago from Indiana. I decided to move here to pursue a career in teaching and to escape Indiana’s winters. I have fallen in love with living in the desert. I love to hike and explore all that Arizona has to offer. I attended Ball State University where I received a degree in Visual Art Education. In my free time, I enjoy painting and creating fine jewelry. A few other hobbies of mine are cooking, reading mystery novels, gardening, and traveling.
Through my curriculum, students will be exposed to new cultures, perspectives, and traditions. Students will gain an appreciation for different artists and art styles. Students will be challenged to “think outside of the box” and create meaningful and innovative artworks.
My biggest hope in this upcoming school year is to have new students discover their love of art and help other students that already do have a deeper appreciation.
