Personal Statement

With each student I work to establish trust and rapport. My classroom atmosphere is a safe space, where students are encouraged to take risks and experiment with their ideas. I position students for success through innovative assignments and instruction that caters to individual learning styles. In my courses, students are given the tools, skills and vocabulary to communicate their ideas visually. Through an education in visual art, every student has the opportunity to become a more confident learner.
