Subjects Taught


Hi Panda Friends and Family,

I am so thrilled to be teaching art to your little one this 2017-2018 school year. There are so many exciting opportunities for your panda in the art room. This year in art we will be exploring and experimenting with a variety of materials and media. We will also engage in class discussions looking at and talking about the master artists such as, Chuck Close, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Henri Rousseau, and my personal favorite, Vincent Van Gogh.

My mission as an art educator is to guide students through meaningful and purpose-driven experiences using media, techniques, and processes. These opportunities I hope will last with your child for a life time.

This is my fifth year as an art educator at Andrews Elementary School. Other than teaching art, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, reading, watching animated movies, coffee, and creating my own art.


Panda parents and friends are always welcomed in the art room. We love to share the madness of the creative process!
