Work History

Objective As a fine arts educator, my passion is to motivate each student in my classroom to develop the visual arts skills needed for success in college. My student’s learn about the visual arts through a comprehensive arts classroom practice. As the classroom teacher I will bridge classroom connections with the visual arts and other content areas such as history, geometry, writing, speech, science all while fostering individual student creativity. The classroom studio goal is to provide the opportunity for each student to become empowered by the arts. Experience Architecture Teacher Thomas Jefferson High School S.A.I.S.D.
