As a well-rounded creative woman, I endeavor to show students the power of art. I have been an art educator at the secondary level for almost two decades. I have earned my MAEd in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and my BFA in Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
I became a visual arts educator because I discovered at a young age the value of the visual arts in my own life. The act of creating art helped me to create my own identity. The process of developing an idea and seeing that idea come to fruition by my own hand gave me a sense of accomplishment unequaled in any other educational experience.
I believe that a visual arts education is a vital part of a student's complete education. I have come to believe, through personal experience, that the arts teach a student to make decisions and problem-solve. The arts harbor a sense of value and accomplishment, and help foster an individual sense of identity, which helps a student develop as an individual.
