A little about me:The 2019-20 school year is my 10th year at CB South, my 19th year in Central Bucks and my 25th year teaching overall (which seems unreal). I am a graduate of Tyler School of Art and have a Master's of Education from Tyler as well.
I have previously taught Intro to Ceramics, Ceramics 1 and Drawing & Painting 1 & 2 at CB South. I also taught Visual Arts (7 & 8) and PEN at Unami Middle School, where I was also the sponsor of the Unami Claymation Club, yearbook, newspaper and set design. I have also taught classes at CB West and Tamanend, as well as summer art classes in the Community School and weekend art courses elsewhere. Before working in CB, I worked with at-risk youth in Montgomery County for over six years.
I am looking forward to a great school year! Feel free to contact me with any questions or information that you need.
