Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice 

I have always enjoyed working with kids...of ALL ages. I have been interested in art, specifically cartooning, since I can remember! Personally, my favorite artist is Charles Schulz. I began collecting Snoopy and Charlie Brown when I was 8 years old and have not stopped! There has always been something so endearing about the stories he told through his comic strips. I chose to be an Art teacher to have the best of BOTH worlds...exploring art, artists, and styles. AND being around 

kids and their quirkiness and moments of “AHA!” It’s an amazing career! Each day brings something totally new (sometimes challenging) and unexpected. 


Personal Interests 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my son, Henry, who is also in middle school. I love dogs, but currently only have one. She is a Boston Terrier named Hoodat. I like to do art projects around the house and will most often do them on a whim! And I like SMILING! “Smiling’s my favorite!”
