I LOVE ART! I am very lucky to teach art at Irmo Elementary. This is my 9th year at Irmo Elementary and I absolutely adore it! I am originally from Texas but moved to Irmo when I was five. I am a product of Lexington-Richland District Five. I graduated from Irmo High School then went to Clemson University where I recieved a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Ceramics. After undergraduate school I knew I wanted to be a teaher so I moved back to Columbia and went to graduate school at the University of South Carolina where I recieved my Masters in Arts Teaching in Art Education. I am very passionate about teaching art because it's something that made me thrive as a student when I was younger. I believe creativity is power.
