Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Middle School Art! I am so excited to be back for another year working with “my kids”, sharing my love of art, its life-long benefits and seeing them grow their skills and appreciation of art!
I hold bachelor degrees in Art Education and Fine Arts (Metals/Jewelry) from Miami University, a masters degree in Art Education from University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and a teaching gifted/talented students certificate from University of Cincinnati.
As a teaching artist, I continue to create outside of teaching. My work is published in several books and has been in shows across the country. Outside of school I continue to make my own work and explore art making as a way to relax and connect with others.
The 2023-2024 school year is my 19th year teaching at New Albany Middle School. Before joining the staff here, I taught college students as a graduate student in both the Art Education and Metals programs at University of Illinois.
I am originally from Cincinnati and spend much of my free time there with family.
