I have been teaching art in Chicagoland since 2010. I pride myself on being a teacher and an artist. Teaching allows me to model and pass my passion for art onto my students. I have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with endorsements in English as a Second/ Additional Language and Special Education. My teaching philosophy: "Art for All" focuses on lesson and content delivery for every type of student and skill level, with an emphasis on visual literacy and content-specific vocabulary to further support academic language beyond the typical core classes.
