I have always had a love for art.  I took art in junior high and high school.  When I started college I wasn't sure what to major in.  My father told me to just take some fun classes and see if they spark any interest.  I took a ceramics class working on the pottery wheel and fell in love with it.  I declared my major in art, and later received a degree in Art Education.  I originally planned to work at the high school level, but ended up taking a position at an elementary.  I have been teaching at Highland Park since 2008.  I love working with young children, they are inspiring and always so excited to create art.  I am so grateful to have this opportunity to work with young students!

My personal areas of interest in art include ceramics, printmaking, watercolor and bookmaking.  Aside from art, I also enjoy quilting, sewing, reading, camping, rock climbing and baking.
