This is my ninth year teaching K-8 art in Oakley schools. I see middle school students for 9 weeks or a semester and elementary one day a week. I teach K-5 art at St. Joseph's Catholic School here in town as well. I am so thankful for supportive administration and community working to keep fine art alive in our district!

As a member of KAEA, I frequently attend our state conference and my goal is to attend National Convention in next few years. I heard about Artsonia at a conference workshop as a lesson plan resource and have had an account for awhile but only recently got organized enough to start a student gallery. Still working on the organized part... Thanks to parent volunteers and talented student artists, it has been a great success.
My husband Matt and I have been married for 10 years and are raising a beautiful little girl, and three labrador retrievers. My husband is an avid bow hunter and living with the obsessed has encouraged me to take up the sport as well in the last couple of years. Though challenging, it has been a fun way to spend time together and enjoy the outdoors. We eat a lot of wild game at our house;) now our one year old daughter will either learn to love or hate the past time as well. My other hobbies include spoiling 2 nieces and 2 nephews, photography, drawing, painting, sewing and reading.
I sincerely hope you enjoy seeing artwork by our talented young artists as much as I do! We have a great time getting messy and creating masterpieces for your viewing pleasure. Thank you for taking the time to appreciate ART!
