I have been teaching at Winooski Middle/High School since 2011.

I became an ART teacher because I value how important the ARTS are in our everyday lives, in subtle and more obvious ways. I appreciate the experiences I have with students when something comes to light inside them creatively. I really enjoy using art and creativity across multiple curricula and embrace any crossover of creative thinking through the ARTS that pushes the envelope of a norm. Students teach me more than I teach them … and we are always learning as beings, co-existing here on earth.

I also teach Read180 Intervention, a Scholastic reading program.
