Learning & Growing Since 1997
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am so excited to be a part of River Springs Elementary School. Here are some fun facts about me. I grew up in New York but have lived in Ohio, New Orleans, Italy, Chicago and South Carolina. My favorite food is pizza and I love making art, practicing yoga, biking and traveling. I obtained my Bachelor's of Art from The University of South Carolina and my Master's of Art from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I have been teaching art for over 15 years.
Teaching art is a natural career for me because it combines my passion for art and love for children. I completed my teaching certification in South Carolina through PACE, the Program for Alternative Certification in Education. My background in art therapy affords me an empathic teaching approach and interest in cultivating self-expression skills. I look forward to meeting everyone and can't wait to make art with you.
