"The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself."
- Alan Alda
My Classroom Mission
As an Art Educator, My mission is too expose students to the world of Visual Art in a way that sparks interest and excitement! I will introduce them to concepts, people, vocabulary, and movements from all over the world. I want to help them develop and refine their own skills and push them to realize their own ability to do well in the creation of art! I have a relaxed and inviting classroom environment where all students have the opportunity to be successful.
I am new to North Iredell Middle and have loved every moment so far! I am originally from Salisbury, Maryland and have an Art degree from Wingate University in NC. I'm in my 10th year of art teaching and am a practicing artist on the side specializing in portraiture and murals. My talent, along with my love for art and kids gives me a great basis to work from in my teaching. I think middle school students are fabulous and I look forward to the challenge of pulling out their creativity, and for many.. ability they never knew they had!
