I saw the movie Alice In Wonderland Sunday afternoon and I LOVED it! I thought it was visually rich and interesting. The characters were quirky, but not disturbingly so. I created a spread in my journal to illustrate a quote that is highlighted in the movie. Of course, in my journal these pages are side by side and you can read the entire quote. I have a few other art projects that I should have been finishing up, but this one demanded to be first!
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.
