After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Andrea became a professional artist for eleven years living in Arkansas, Mexico, Hawaii, and California. Her work has been represented internationally as well as nationally. She decided to teach in 2011 after getting her "non-traditional" teaching license thus becoming a "highly-qualified" teacher in her content area. Andrea has taught college level, middle school and now elementary...which is her favorite! She loves to work with the children and encourage the artist to bloom!
