I just started a new round robin group project called Artistic Evolution. We are all using the same chipboard journals with pages that vary in size so you can see the edges of other pages. The idea is you start with a color combo and a theme and each artist carries the previous page theme to the next page. It will be fun to see how the ideas morph from one page to another. I had two books here and I did the spreads this weekend.
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.
