Welcome to my web site. I received a B.F.A. in Studio Arts degree from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. Upon graduation I returned to school and completed the requirements for a secondary certification of art. Now I have 20 years teaching experience and 10 years with DeSoto High School and Academies. While at DHS I have taught all studio classes -- Art One, Art Two, Art Three, Art Four, International Bacaalorat and Art AP. I try my best to integrate as much Art History into each and every class. When asked, Why teach? Besides the enjoyment I get from working with students, I always say that “everyone in my family is either a preacher or a teacher and I did not know enough scripture to preach. “ As for my free time, I enjoy painting, going to art galleries, and spending time with my wire -haired terrier Oliver, who loves to eat bananas as a treat. Do not worry, I taught him how to peel the bananas before eating. If asked, What are your goals in teaching? I would say that I hope my students become life-long supporters of the visual arts and hope that my teaching helps each student to gain a sense of self- worth. Again, thanks for visiting my web site. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
