About me:

This is my third year at Thomas Edison High School and I am again looking forward to trying out new projects and lessons in my classroom this year. I recently finished my Master's of Education Program at the University of Minnesota where I also received my undergraduate degree in Fine Art (with a minor in horticulture). I am so excited for this school year and have received wonderful support from the awesome faculty and staff here. This year I am hoping to collaborate more with community partners to bring some exciting opportunities to the Art dept. Already we are planning to work with MN Books Arts and HighPoint Center for Printmaking in Mpls.

I am also the Head Coach of our Varsity Softball team and an advisor for the Edison Outdoor Club. I am glad to share any information on either group for anyone interested. 

Courses I Teach:

Drawing and Painting I

Drawing and Painting II

Media Arts (Mixed Media)


Support Times

Studio time is available after school Tuesday-Thursday. Students check in with me during the day and ask if I will be available after school, otherwise, I let them know a better day when I will be in. The majority of students who need to complete extra work are encouraged to come to advisory and generally find that time to be enough.
