I am excited to join the Roller Family this 2021-2022 School Year. I will be working with your child to provide enriching learning experiences. I will be specializing in three main areas of Art Instruction. ART I & ART II will concentrate on the Elements & Principals of Design. 3-Dimensional Art will vary from sculpture to clay projects. Adaptive Art will provide modifications for an inclusive classroom. Select 7th graders will see me for the year in 7th Grade Advisory. In collaboration with Ms. Albert, I will provide instruction for 11th grade Service Practicum.
I have been working in the educational field for the last twenty plus years. I have had great opportunities in Early Childhood Enviornments to Adult Basic Education. I expanded my professional tool belt working in the behavioral health field with At-Risk Youth. I had the unique opportunity to work with adjudicated youth. For the last decade I was working with the Navy.
In my free time, I enjoy crafting or working on projects around the house. I am continually adding to my Disney collection. I feel that using your imagination is just part of everyday life. I love cooking new foods. Spending time outdoors is a great way to relax.
I have a strong background in Ceramics and Photography. I enjoy hands on learning. Art has always provided an additional outlet for reflection and growth of my personal stories. Printmaking, Glass-Blowing, Jewelry Making are some other highlights of my art exploration.
I hope to build strong relationships with your child and the families we serve through our shared experiences.
