All about me...


[High School and College] - [Career] - [Me]

I graduated from
Southfield Lathrup High School in 1988. I attended Bradley University for my BFA in Painting, with a drawing equivalent. (I could not double major in Art). I graduated in 1992. I have taken a total of 96 hours in studio and art history courses. After graduating, I attended ASU for my teacher certification. Since I have been teaching, I have also gotten my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from ASU.

I started working at
McClintock High School in the fall of 1996. In the fall of 2009, I started teaching a few classes at Desert Vista High School . I teach Art and Design, Drawing and Painting 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and Honors Art 1-2, 3-4, 5-6. In the fall of 2010, I added Mountain Pointe High School to my teaching day for Ceramics. Over the summer, I enjoyed working with 5 - 13 year olds at the Summer Arts Academy at Desert Vista. This fall, I am teaching 4 classes at Desert Vista and 2 classes at MTP. I am currently preparing for a show at the TUHSD District Office and considering a few other ones. In addition, I will be doing a workshop at the AAEA Conference in November.

I married my husband in 2002. He is a teacher at
Coronado High School in Scottsdale. We live in Tempe with our dog, Shanny. She is named after a former Detroit Red Wing – Brendan Shanahan. The paintings you see on each page are my work. One is pencil sharpeners and the other is kitchen timers. I continue to paint and draw as often as I can.
