About the Teacher
This is my tenth year in this Elementary Art position.
My main goal is to inspire students and keep creativity vibrant while making many cross-curricular connections through Art. I believe that all students should have experience with drawing, painting, and clay sculpting.
I have taught Visual Arts, Crafts, Woodworking and Theater Arts to students of all ages over the last two decades. I have knowledge and experience with Montessori Curriculum and extensive experience with Waldorf Education. These influences are evident in my Art lessons with each grade level. I am also motivated to continually develop Arts integrated as well as S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) based curriculum.
This is my fourteenth year in Tanque Verde District having taught Art and Theater Arts at Emily Gray and Tanque Verde High School from 2004 to 2008.
It is a joy to work with students at TVES.
