I am an artist, educator and teaching artist with experience working with a variety of age groups. Throughout my endeavors, I have experience teaching art, art appreciation, and art history to middle-school, high-school and college age groups (ages 11-22). I have recently taught workshops for kids of all ages through the Center for Arts Education and the Sports and Arts in Schools foundation.
I have a passion for education and working with children of all ages! I have a calm, warm, yet assertive presence that provides a caring and creative environment while giving the structure to keep kids safe and attended to developmentally. My experience as a teacher allows me to give excellent help with homework as well!
I also spent several years teaching swimming lessons to children of all ages, but primarily ages 2-12. I have both a license and a car, and also love all pets.
I urge creativity, and love to find activities for kids that empower them as individuals. I believe the importance of arts education cannot be overstated, and I love to create engaging activities for kids and spend lots of time outside.
