Welcome to my site! I am eager to be back in the community and school that I grew up in. This town and school district was such a positive influence for me in many aspects, and I can't wait to now BE that positive influence on the many students and community members. My philosophy about education, and particularly art, is that every student is able to achieve their goals. All it takes is some time, dedication, and willingness to try and fail, and try again! I can't wait to see all the students surprise themselves when they surpass what they think they are able to do!
