About the Art Educator

I am currently I am in my sixth year of high school after 3 years in middle school and 5 years in the elementary classroom. I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts with Education Certification EC-12 from the University of Texas at Arlington in May 2009. I am finishing my Masters in Art Education in May 2023! I also create art and go to art shows in my spare time with different organizations around the DFW area, including ArtLoveMagic and PiranhaBear!  

This year was my 3rd year in a row to be NOMINATED for Teacher of the Year and the first year that I actually WON!

My student's interpretation of me as a teacher...very accurate, and she definitely nailed the red hair!

Self Portrait I just completed while applying for my master's degree.

I absolutely LOVE DOT DAY!!!! (IDD 2014)
