Maintaining a level of professionalism inside and outside the four walls of my art room has proven vital!
In extending myself to areas outside of my classroom, through community events, athletic coaching, school spirit events, the morning announcements, school yearbook and calendars, and even simple things like bus duty, I feel more connected to my peers and to the student body; through this, my own educational practice is enriched!
I truly consider myself to be a lifelong learner, seeking further education in and out of my field, through local studio classes, personal studio work at my home studio, and graduate coursework at UArts.
