As an art educator, I will strive to make my classroom a place that allows my students the ability to explore their ideas openly. My vast years of management roles have taught me the ability to assert myself to keep the classroom in order when necessary. I have created many lesson plans through the credential program and I am excited to share what I know with the classes I will teach. I hope to educate students on a variety of artistic skills while facilitating a judgment-free classroom that appreciates diversity and inclusivity. These are the formative years for a student, which I believe are best used to try new things.
