I am incredibly excited to be teaching art at John Lyman School. I had the honor of student teaching here and ever since that experience, I knew that this was where I was meant to teach. New this year, I am here full-time!
I am a wife and mom of three young boys. Before teaching at John Lyman I was a graphic designer, a Music Together instructor, and a performer (mostly on the Essex Steam Train).
Besides making my own art and teaching children about art, I love spending time with my family and friends, listening to music, singing, going to the beach,photography, hiking, boating and star gazing.
This fall I just began my journey to receiving my masters degree in Art Education at CCSU. I'm starting with an Advanced Painting class and am loving every minute of it.
Come by the Art room anytime! I'd love to meet you & there is always a need for parent volunteers. It's going to be a wonderfully creative fun-filled year!
