Visual Art Educator
Fairhaven High School
I have been teaching for 14 years, 10 at Fairhaven High School. Over the last few years I have been shifting into a student choice classroom. This transition is still in the works and will continue to improve with each project, student, and reflection. I am passionate about process over product, leading my students to gain experiences and skills that they can continue to use and investigate, while creating work that is personal and meaningful. I have taught Photo, Digital Art, Art I, II, and III as well as blended units using traditional and digital media together. As National Art Honor Society Advisor I have had the opportunity to work with our more dedicated art students with a mission to bring art into our community. I have presented at Massachusetts Art Education Association conferences as well as National Art Education Conventions, I enjoy the sharing, and gaining experiences of the conference setting.
