This is my 8th year at Sycamore and I'm so excited to be back. I've been teaching art for around 16 years.
I'm a wife and mother of two. My youngest will be in the 7th grade this year. My oldest daughter will be a senior. Time really flies.
I'm the daughter of an artist. I don't remember when I learned to draw. It has always been part of my life. It never occurred to me that I couldn't draw. It just seemed a natural place where I've always been comfortable. I see that in my own girls. No one ever told them they couldn't draw or create, so they show no fear when it comes to art. The following is how I try to teach. I really believe that every one of my students will succeed. I'm always honest with them in class. Some will soar and some will merely flutter their wings. But, they will all create! Art class isn't about being the best. It is about the journey. Relax and enjoy the experience.
