I love my job!  Teaching art is incredibly fun.  I learn so much from my young artists every day.  Children have amazing imaginations and their ideas are endless.  My day is spent helping my students see how art can be a part of their lives.  We learn techniques, art history, the potential of art media, and make connections to other subjects.  We also have fun!
