This is my 2nd year at Immanuel. I have 10 years of teaching experience. I was a 1st and 4th grade teacher in St Louis, MO for four years. Then I taught pre-school for six years in Lake in the Hills.
I attended Concordia University of Chicago in River Forest. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Education with my teaching certificate for k-8.
I enjoy reading, riding my bike with my kids, scrapbooking, and time with friends and family.
Philosophy of Teaching
I believe that teachers should teach in the way their students learn. I engage my students in discussions about our projects and artists. I want my students to feel free to express themselves through their art. I ask my students to not give up and to try their best. Art is what they make of it, not how I make it. I give them the tools, the ideas, and I teach them how to approach making art, but it is up to them to make it their own. I have a lot of enthusiasm for teaching art and I hope it transfers to my students and their enthusiasm for art.
