Degrees and Certifications:
I am happy to say that I have been teaching art in the Arlington school district for 23 years now. I
graduated with a B.S. degree in Art Education from Kutztown University and a Masters degree in
Special Education from Western Connecticut State University. My husband and I have two
wonderful children Tyler and Makenna. In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my family, doing
all kinds of artwork, gardening and playing golf.
As an art teacher, I will introduce students to different art forms, art history and techniques. My
philosophy is not to grade a student on their artistic abilities but on their efforts and willingness to
learn and try. Most importantly, I feel art should be used as a tool to teach and reinforce
life skills. These skills include, but are not limited to, respect, responsibility, creativity, cooperative
learning and problem solving. By the end of the school year, students will have learned many
aspects of the world of art and be better prepared for a successful future.
