 My philosophy as a teacher is that it is my job to be a part of the larger community of people who help to influence a person's life long decision-making skills..  It is to provide my students with additional, fundamentaltools to make positive life choices.  I believe building genuine and authentic relationships is at the heart of this process.  In order for a student to find success, we must help them to discover and explore their own ideas, opinions, and internal motivations.  As an art teacher I want to give my students the necessary tools and time to discover their own creativity and help them see art as an enduring and positive outlet for their own self-expression.

This is my first year at Sentinel High School, and around my 15th year teaching. I look forward to being a part of the the creative experience with my students at Sentinel, we have an exciting year ahead.
