Why I Chose Education as My Career of Choice

I love using technology in the classroom to make learning exciting.  I am always interested in learning new ways to implement technology into art education.  I love making art education interactive and incorporating literature. I enjoy helping students use technology to enhance the artmaking process.

With the many challegnes of 21st century, I will continue to lead and provide students with the knowledge and skills to use both art and technology to explore creativity in different ways.  This will provide meaningful and engaging learning opportunities for our students!

My ultimate goal is to aid in the success of our students and to play a vital role in education.  By combining my range of experience with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic, intelligent educator, I will make a positive contribution to education.
