During the first two weeks of school, the students created hand prints as a getting-to-know-me activity. Through this project, I was able to learn a lot about each of my students. I learned their favorite colors, sports, games, activities, I learned their drawing abilities, design skills, their fine-motor skills (like tracing and cutting), and so much more. This turned out to be a success!
I am the art teacher at Big Shanty Intermediate School. I have been teaching art for 13 years, and have taught all grade levels, K-12. I have two daughters, both attend school at Palmer. I love to paint, and I specialize in portraiture, abstract art, cityscapes, and flower paintings. I am so excited about this 2016-2017 school year!
