This year is the Year of the Magical Unicorn!
Research, community, making art and humor are all a part of my philosophy as a teacher.
Welcome to 8th grade Art/Technology on the Unity Team! I have a Masters of Art in Teaching from Kent State University and graduated from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design and Art and minor in Spanish. Go DAWGS.
I started teaching when I was eleven at Safety Town in Fairview Park (on the West Side) continuing with community, private and parochial school art classes. I received my Masters of Art in Teaching Art at Kent State University in 2001 and started teaching at Hudson City Schools. Other experiences that have been key to sharing with students are traveling with IREX (IREX works with individuals, institutions, and governments around the world to expand access to education and improve the quality of instruction. http://https://www.irex.org/) , Car racing, creating artwork, and ILEP. I am involved with Ohio Art Education Association and the National Art Education Association for the betterment of all students. I teach art workshops on my own porch and around the country.
