Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Saint Anthony Park students and families! I am SO excited to be here!
My belief system: The arts build community, increase cultural awareness, mend wounds and celebrate differences. Societies that invest in the arts flourish and grow. Students with access to quality visual and performing arts programs have stronger social emotional health and are more engaged in their school day.
My experience: This is only my first year at SAP, but I have taught Visual Art since 2001 (SPPS beginning in 2006). I started my career teaching elementary art in the Seattle area and am excited to return to the K-5 age group. I recently returned to being a student myself. I am working towards a masters degree in Arts and Cultural Leadership at the University of Minnesota, and will finish up this Spring.
My life: Aside from teaching, learning and creating my own art... I love to read, garden, take my new dog for walks, camp and travel with my family (husband and 2 middle school age sons).
Please reach out with any questions or if you have anything to share.
