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.
Guest Artist in the Classroom
2020 Golda Meir High School
Guest artist Sarah Gail Luther joined the classroom to introduce art as activism and public art. Students created their own public art that addressed an issue important to them or their community.
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.
