Why I chose education as My Carer of Choice

I have had a passion for the Arts most of my life and have been working towards being a teacher the last 15 years.  Combining these two areas has been my lifelong dream. Art has helped me through so many hard times and it is my goal in life to show others that anyone and everyone can create art.

Personal Interests

My family is most important thing to me.   After losing my sister in a car accident in 2005, and my mother to cancer 3 years ago, I have learned every moment counts!  I love spending time with my nieces and nephew watching movies or playing games. I also enjoy just having a cup of coffee with a friend and talking about life, or going on long drives around the country to see the beauty of the world around us.
