Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Art! I have been teaching art for over 16 years, and have taught in Saginaw, Ann Arbor, Chicago, and Detroit before coming to Birmingham Public Schools. I am an avid painter and guitar player and I like to camp, fish and hike around Michigan and beyond with my time off. I also am writing a young adult fantasy novel, and teach painting classes/parties and do commissions as well. I have been in Birmingham Public for six years now, and am involved in many extra-curricular activities such as: the annual Talent Show, the DAFT Student Film Festival, PTA Reflections, 5th grade camp, Celebrate the Arts, Battle of the Books, our Earthwise initiatives, after-school BASE classes, including Animation and Cartooning, and I also do the cross-walk twice a day. I love teaching art and enjoy seeing the kids use their imagination and watching as their skills and understanding grow over the years.
