ABOUT
ABOUT ME

I have the pleasure of being an Art teacher at Mount Everett Regional School. I am lucky to have some of the most creative, kind, fun-loving students in my room every day. My other passion is for cultural exchange and travel. I began taking students on international trips years ago, which led to building a robust Global Program complete with student exchanges, cooperative international symposiums, and a global pathway for students in school.

WHAT I'VE DONE

I began my career as an art educator and ceramicist, but always had many varied interests. Naturally, this influenced my philosophy of interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Within the context of art, I have been able to create programs and experiences that connect with multiple scales and perspectives, and that has been personally fulfilling. This is what led me to Fulbright as well as a path to a deeper understanding and connection to indigenous culture and place-based curriculum.

WHAT I DO

Creating artwork for me is mostly about trying out project ideas, practicing, and experimenting with media. I also spend loads of time thinking, learning, writing, planning, and coordinating. I'm finding fulfillment in some of my new connections within schools and organizations in the county, with whom I share common interests and goals. Community is everything.
