I have been teaching since 2000.  My experience in General Education has allowed me to instruct with differentiation, which means that I can confidently reach students of different grade levels and learning styles.  I enjoy showing my students how to explore their creativity using different media.  I consider myself to be a visual linguist. My Graphic Design background is very important. I share with my students the ability to communicate successfully through the application of visual literacy.

I have a wonderful husband and three super sweet cats. 

I love to travel as much as I love art.  I have been fortunate to have learned several languages (English, Chinese, French, and Vietnamese).  

Although I am privileged to have knowledge of these languages, Art has always been my main communication tool because I consider it to be a universal language.  My goal is to help my students at Columbia, Rainbow, and Madison  Elementary Schools appreciate Art as a form of communication.
