I am an Artist/Teacher with eight years of experience inspiring learners through innovative Art and Interdisciplinary programs in schools, nonprofits, and museums. I love teaching and designing curriculum for children and adults.
As a classroom teacher, I have taught at a college prep private school, grades K-12, including AP High School classes, at a public elementary school, and at a therapeutic school for at-risk teens. I am licensed to teach Art, Social Studies, and Language Arts.
As the Museum Education Coordinator at the Danforth Museum, I managed all Museum Education Programs, expanded the Teen Docent Program, and created interdisciplinary gallery activities. At the Amon Carter Museum and the Dallas Museum of Art, I created exciting web and on-site learning experiences, designed workshops for teachers and led dynamic tours with urban school children. My museum experience includes a prestigious competitive internship at the Art Institute of Chicago, where I helped design programming, developed tours and contributed to the website.
Originally from Illinois, by way of Texas, I have a BFA (Painting and Drawing); a certificate in Art Museum Education, and an MA in Art Education from the University of North Texas.
