I made this little wall-hanging for a little girl who was in my class last year. She invited me to her birthday party and I can't go because I'm goin' to an ART PARTY !!! So, I hope she likes it and will want to hang it up in her room. My art bud, Julie, is hosting another awesome art party at her beautiful home. This time my stepdaughter, Sera, is able to go with me. It is so much fun to hang out with my art friends, eating, drinking, and doing art together until the wee hours! I am extra excited because Peggy is flying down, Beth is giving herself a little art break from mommyhood, Kelly, Tally and Mary will be adding their magic to the mix. I will be sure to post pics of the shenanigans!
I have a degree in Child Development and have been teaching for 25 years. Most of these years have been spent with second graders with the exception of 4 years in first grade. I love introducing my students to the joy of reading "chapter books" and the language of literature.
I am a mixed-media artist and am lucky to be teaching at a fine arts magnet school. I use music and visual art every day in my classroom.
I have been married for 29 years and my husband teaches High School English. I have raised 4 wonderful kids and am still working on the yellow labs that live in our house.
