Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog! I started my teaching career in 1997 as an adjunct professor of studio art and art history. After 4 years as an adjunct, I found a job teaching grades 1-8 in the NH public school system and later earned my certification.

Although I enjoyed both of those positions, after 21 years, I had finally found my dream job teaching K-5 at an inner-city school. I have been in my current position for 4 years now. It is challenging and rewarding at the same time. My choice-based art curriculum resonates especially well with my students.

In addition to teaching, I also create my own art. I feel an innate need to do for both self-expression, well-being and to also keep up my skills for teaching. I work in a variety of media, including acrylic, watercolors, printmaking and various drawing materials. My work is mostly representational, but lately I have been enjoying exploring abstraction and the process of mark making.

Welcome to my blog! I’ve been an art teacher for over 20 years and have worked with a variety of age levels. I am passionate about art, teaching and learning. I’m excited to share lessons, resources, tips and tricks that I currently use in my elementary choice-based art room. Read More
