Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelors of Science in Art Education from The University of Wisconsin-Madison. Master of Arts in Education from Hamline University. Doctorate in Teacher Leadership from Walden University. MN Teaching Licenses in Visual Arts K-12, and Communication Technology Career (CTE) 7-12 BACKGROUND I have enjoyed teaching art to students since 1997, first in Sussex Wisconsin, starting at Highland in 2000. I have taught classes of dark room photography and digital photography, studio art, stained glass, ceramics, painting, art history, drawing, AVID, Summer School Math, Money Management, and of course IB Art and Design. My constant pleasure is helping students develop their skills and find their voices. My philosophy is that art should allow people to grow in technical and creative skills. I admire Minnesota artist and Duluth native Wing Young Huie who said, "Art can be a window and a mirror." We may see others more clearly through art. We may also better understand ourselves. Huie and I have a shared interest in journalism, storytelling, and visual communication. Art and Design work includes 'Visual Thinking' and 'Studio Habits of Mind' (google them :) ), including factors like observation and persistence. I look forward to learning about you and about art and design together!
