This is my 19th year teaching art and my 8th year teaching in Lexington/Richland School District 5. I am truly honored to share my love of art with your beautiful children. Before teaching in South Carolina, I taught art for 11 years in a variety of schools in the Chicago area. Prior to working in education, I worked as a registered art therapist and licensed, clinical counselor in the Chicago area with special needs children for seven years. I created a variety of wellness programs in community mental health, private practice and served as a mental health consultant for Head Start Preschool programs. I am passionate about using art to promote emotional and social growth and fell in love with being in the classroom setting. I realized that I could best serve children in educational settings teaching them life-long, self-expression skills.
