This will be my fifth year teaching Art in a public school setting, my 4th with Dayton ISD.
I have held a variety of jobs in my years since college, all of them centered around children and/or Art. Immediately following my graduation from college, I worked in an Advertising Agency for 7 years. I spent time at home with my children for the next 8 years, working part time as a preschool teacher, an afterschool Art Teacher, a freelance Artist, and a substitute teacher.
Mike and I met and married during our time at Texas State University. We have been married for 20 years. We have 2 children, a son in high school and a daughter in middle school. My husband served 26 years in the Naval Reserves and has been a Police Officer for almost as long. We stay busy with the kids’ activities including FFA, lacrosse, scouts, and theater. It’s a crazy busy life and we love it!
