A little about me…

I have been teaching Art at Douglass Valley since 2004.  My childhood was spent as a military dependent, and my spouse was in the military and retired in 2005.  We have called Colorado our home since 2002.  I have three grown daughters.  I have been teaching since 2000, and I have worked for DODDS as a kindergarten para professional for four years.  When I started working for DODDS schools in the late 80’s, I decided to become a certified teacher.  I fell in love with teaching and wanted to make a difference in the lives of children.  I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with Middle Grade endorsements in Business.  I also hold a Masters of Arts Degree through Colorado College. I have served on the District 20 Visual Arts Committee, that represents all of D20 to make a positive impact in curriculum.  I pride myself on service to our community.

I love working at DVE because it involves the military child.  Something, I relate well too!  Art is my passion.  It excites me to teach about famous artists throughout history.  I enjoy teaching students about the different periods of art and cultures.  Art allows them to use their creativity skills as they learn visually.  I teach Art with a curriculum based progression in each grade level.  We read books which enhance their factual knowledge about history and time periods.
