TEACHER / ART
Degrees and Certifications:

Prior to teaching art, I was a freelance graphic designer. I have designed local and international magazines, a line of house paint, painted murals, and owned a local newspaper. I have been fortunate enough to have lived in England and I love to travel. My current passion is fossil hunting – I found a trilobite fossil in my driveway!
In 2020, I was honored to be the art teacher of the only middle school student in the state of Kansas to be recognized for their artwork at the national level of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.
I believe that art should be inclusive and not exclusive – everyone is an artist in some way!
My favorite things are lemon cake, kindness, frosted sugar cookies, kindness, Hershey’s chocolate, finding a penny, and kindness!
