Welcome to school year 2023-2024 ar Shaw VPA. I am so excited. This year marks my 25th year teaching. Throughout my teaching practice, I have taught a variety of subjects including middle school History, and Communication Arts, Fifth and Sixth grade, and, of course… ART!!! I graduated from Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri in 1999 and hold two Missouri State certifications, Elementary Education 1-6, and Art Education K-12. In addition to teaching Visual Art at Shaw School, I also am a teaching artist for C.O.C.A. (Center of Creative Arts) located in St. Louis, Missouri, where I spend my summers creating art with children.
I am an artist with many facets. I am an artist who enjoys drawing, painting and making pottery. I have been an artist as long as I can remember! As a child I learned through the arts, in fact, the arts are what inspired me to be the best that I could be. I know exactly how important it is to foster the arts in young children. In my classroom, your child will explore his or her inner artist and use visual art as a means for self-expression. My classroom is a place that children can feel safe, be creative and through art, make connections to their other subject areas as well as the world around them.
