A love of learning is a quality that I possess that I hope to imbue in my students. I approach every experience with an open mind and the awareness that it is an opportunity to learn something new. I will always seek out ways to grow as an educator and artist. I recognize that learning to be an excellent teacher is a life long process and I will continue to seek out experiences that broaden my skill set and provide new opportunities for learning. Below is a collection of experiences I participated in to hone my skill set and learn new things.
Innovative Educators Institute
The Innovative Educators Institute at Lynden Sculpture garden is a hands-on, year long professional development experience that brings together pre-service and veteran teachers along with artists to develop and share interdisciplinary curriculum and strategies.
