Teaching Art Integrated Science along side the humanities is an absolute dream come true!
I became a teacher because I volunteered at a Quaker Friends School when my daughter started kindergarten. As I stayed on to develop & teach a technology curriculum, I fell in love with creating an environment supportive of ethical, best practices & where every individual is cherished & given fair, appropriate opportunities.
My alma mater is Webster University in St. Louis, where I received my education degree & teacher certification. I created a STEAM not-for-profit educational program called ArtCare & worked at several unique schools in the Midwest before venturing back to the NW permanently.
My pedagogy includes inspiration from the Reggio Emilia Approach, Love & Logic classroom management, non-verbal skills practice & experiential discovery. I also adore being a new grandma, a mother of two gifted souls, a working artist, a community builder & a wannabe quantum physicist!
