It is an honor to be a part of the Westwood team! This year I will be teaching Painting, Drawing, & Stained Glass – various levels; grades 9-12.  This will be my 10th year teaching in the MPS District and I am looking forward to starting this year’s adventure - meeting new faces and catching up with old ones!

I’m originally from the Midwest, born and raised in Cleveland Ohio. I moved to Arizona in 2006.  As a graduate of ASU, I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2007 & Master of Education in 2010.  Teaching is my passion! In my free time I enjoy traveling, hiking, creating art, and spending time with my 15-year-old pug and my 1-year old cat.

I believe every student can succeed; art skills can be acquired by practice and persistence – anyone can learn! It is my responsibility to facilitate many opportunities to grow as possible. Please see the course syllabus linked to my website for more information about the course content. I am excited as I look forward to starting this year with you!
