WORK BACKGROUND AND EDUCATION:
I graduated from ASU with a BS in Business Management and Administration. I worked in the Aerospace Industry for six years, several as a financial analyst. I left work to be a stay-at-home mom. While raising my children I discovered my love for teaching. I earned my teaching certificate from Rio Salado College. I taught first, fourth and sixth grades at Ishikawa for five years, and sixth grade math at Barbara Bush for eight years. This is my second year teaching art. I absolutely love it! Art incorporates all our core subjects: Math, History, English, and Science in a visual, tactile and less-stress environment. I have been a "hobby artist" all of my life. I grew up the daughter of a ceramics teacher and have been doing it since I was little. I have taken private art lessons and and college art classes. The medium I love best is painting with acrylics, but I continue to take art classes in other mediums such as glassblowing, stained glass and fused glass. I look forward to teaching students art concepts in different mediums and towards another wonderful year full of diverse, fun and informative learning.
Since I will be at four different schools on varying days this year, if you need to contact me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to getting to know your children, and showing them the amazing influence art can have in their lives.
