I earned my bachelors of Art Education from Buffalo State College of New York with a Minor in Art Therapy and a concentration in Ceramics. My teaching career began in Alvin ISD in 1998 at Hood Case Elementary teaching Art for Kindergarten through 6th grade. I then moved on to Nolan Ryan Jr High when the school opened and stayed for eight years before moving up to the High School the first year Shadow Creek opened. I thoroughly enjoy my time at Shadow Creek working to build creative minds and advance students learning. My Courses this year include Art 1, Ceramics II, Sculpture II,Studio II and AP 3D. I serve as the advisor for our National Art Honor Society as well as the SCHS facilitator for the Visual Arts Team. In my own practice of art I work with Fiber Art, Metal Enameling, as well as small scale mixed media sculptures.
