Grade Level / Subject Taught / Position
What year did you start working at Jonathan Valley Elementary School?
I started in 2018 at JVE but have been teaching art in Haywood county since 2014.
Personal work experience and past careers:
I got my BA in Multimedia Arts and Sciences with an emphasis in 3D animation at UNCA. I taught summer 3D animation, web design and graphic design classes out of college, fell in love with teaching and then went back to school for my teaching licence in art education. I even spent one summer teaching web design at a world cultural festival in Saudi Arabia. This experience really gave me a love o teaching my students about other cultures through art
I have two small children, a girl and a boy plus cat and dog! We named out cat Picasso after the famous artist because he looks like one of Picasso’s paintings.
I love to paint, draw, and any sort of art making. I also enjoy gardening, playing computer games and board games, and most of all, spending time with my family and friends.
