Hi, I am a teacher, artist and researcher currently finishing a Master of Art in Teaching at the Maryland Institute College of Art. My primary concern is that children view themselves as responsible for becoming considerate community members and innovative thinkers. The art room is the perfect space to practice exploring questions of self , art and world through image making, material research, and reflective writing. I am an intuitive and joyfully dedicated teacher-artist guided by childrens' individual needs. My goal is to develop an engaging learning community that empowers self reliance and critical thinking in children Inside each child lies a well of experiences, and questions; in my classroom those truths are to be considered deeply so that learners can find their own authentic voice. By making, they will encounter the ‘heart’ of what truly moves them.
