Come by the art room at Lakeview Elementary! I have been the art teacher at Lakeview Elementary for seven years. Before coming to Lakeview, I was an art teacher at Willowridge High School for four years. Prior to that I was a substitute teacher in Cypress Fairbanks ISD for two years.
My husband, Dan, and I moved to Houston from Austin. Our daughter, Samantha, is a Freshman at Kempner High School. We also have a rat terrier, named Joey and a turtle.
In my free time I like to read, and frequently play games with my family. We also travel every summer, usually to Michigan, where I'm from.
One thing I have learned from being an art teacher is that everyone has artistic potential. Often times the people who doubt themselves the most have the greatest ability. It's important to keep an open mind and be willing to try something new. I try to encourage my students to have FUN with art, and we often end up laughing at our mistakes and finding a way to make them part of our picture!
