About The Teacher
Dear Kyrene Families,
I am so happy to be the Art Teacher at Manitas and Mirada for the 2018-2019 school year. I hold a B.S. in Art Education/Art Therapy and a M.A. from Adelphi University. I'm certified in Art Education (K-12), Elementary Ed. (K-5), and SEI (K-12)
My educational experience includes teaching primary grades as a regular classsroom teacher for 8 years. Since coming to Arizona from NY, I worked as a Faculty Associate at ASU in the American English Cultural Program. Within the Kyrene District, I taught Art at Monte Vista and Manitas, SEI at Lomas, as well as, substituted for two years. This is my 6th year as the Art Teacher at Manitas.
I am married and have two boys that both attended Kyrene schools.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, swimming, painting, pottery, and especially traveling and spending time with my family. I am thrilled to be both a parent and educator in such a premier school district. It is an honor to be working with your child and look forward to a creative, fun filled school year.
