This is my 27th year of teaching in Orange County. The first 14 I taught in the regular classroom here at Brookshire, 6th, 4th and 5th! I taught 6 years in the Gifted program at Dommerich Elementry and this is my 7th year back at Brookshire teaching art! I especially love elementary students because they have no fear when creating art! I love my job and love working on new ideas to enhance my students' art education. I have very high expectations of myself as well as my students. They believe they can do anything! My philosophy about art is that it is a "problem solving" arena. There are several ways to accomplish something. I emphasize creativity, thinking outside the box, working hard, and doing your BEST all of the time!
