Degrees and Certifications:
B.A. - Studio Art M.A.T.- Art Education AP Certified
As a South Carolina native, I attended USC, where I earned both my Bachelors in Art and Masters in Teaching. I taught 6th-12th grade art at a South Carolina public school before moving to New Orleans in June, 2015. In New Orleans, I taught 9th-12th grade art for 2 years. I moved to the Concord area from New Orleans in June of 2017. I'm excited to be a part of this wonderful community!
I design my classes to teach students problem solving and critical thinking skills. Visual art is tricky, because often times the artist has to problem-solve without a set formula. This is where creativity comes into play. By persevering through challenging projects, students will gain confidence in their abilities, and develop important qualities such as grit. Students keep hard copies of their work in their portfolios, but are also required to submit digitally on our Google Classroom site.
