Degrees and Certifications:
I'm thrilled to be your child's art teacher this year! This is my ninth year teaching art, and this is my fifth year at Lawhon Elementary. I previously taught 6th - 12th grade art at YES Prep Southeast in Houston for four years. I also have experience in art museum education; I worked at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in Family and Community Programs. I also worked at my favorite art museum in Houston, The Menil Collection, in Special Events and Public Relations. I have a Masters in Art Education from the University of Houston, and a Bachelors in Mass Communication from Texas State.
Previous to my career in art education, I worked in advertising in New York City. It was in NYC that I began volunteering in art museum education and working with young children and the arts. I have always enjoyed the arts and making art - even as young as two years old! It is a joy to now explore and make art with our students at Lawhon.
I'm originally from Houston, and I live in the Pearland area with my husband and two young children, Max and Sadie. We also have a dog, Brooklyn. I love making art with my kids at home, and in the summer we have "Art Thursdays" and visit museums and galleries!
