Biography

 

Hello parents, guardians, and students! Welcome to art class. I am excited to work with such a talented group of young artists. I have been living in Laramie for nine years and I am in my ninth year of teaching art to the students of Slade Elementary School and Centennial Elementary School. Prior to working at Slade and Centennial, I received my bachelor’s degree in education with an emphasis in art from the University of Nevada, Reno. I have a master’s degree, and I am certified in, special education. With my free time, I like to create art using graphite, watercolor, and colored pencils. I am a competitive powerlifter with two competitions under my lifting belt. It has become my second love outside of teaching art. I also love to hang out with my redbone hound mix, Harriet. I am passionate about sharing the enriching world of art with your child(ren). I hope that he or she takes away from my instruction a set of skills that can translate into all areas of their lives and a lifelong love of art. Now let’s create!
