    Hello and welcome to my art classroom.  This is my fifth year teaching now and I was lucky to be at Fifth Ward Junior High all of these years.  This school is extraordinary and teaching is my passion!  I love showing students what they are capable of creating in my classroom.  I enjoy motivating all students to think deeper about what they want to accomplish and how their artwork can be unique.

    I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in May of 2014 with a bachelor's degree in Art Education.  I am a member of the National Art Education Associaction(NAEA) and Louisiana Art Education Association(LAEA).  In 2016 I was awarded the "LAEA New to the Profession" award at the Fall conference in Hammond.  I was also appointed as the Artist in the Capitol Day Chairperson for LAEA last year.  I have also attended countless professional development opportunities and conferences to further excel in my career.

    I am thrilled to start a new year on a fresh "canvas!"  We have many exciting projects and lessons planned for the year as we shoot for the stars!
