Teaching Philosophy & Bio

I am a Visual Arts teacher at Trafalgar Castle School for Grades 8 – 12, and an Academic Advisor.  My previous experience is with the DDSB and teaching English in Korea.  In teaching, my greatest joy comes from helping students find their artistic voice, watching them embrace the process of creating and exploring every medium and technique that we can together!  Learning about Art History and seeing the work of contemporary artists fuels my soul.  I am also deeply committed to teaching about the history, artistic practices and stories of women in art.
