I have really been enjoying my career as an art teacher. As I journey into my sixth year at Butcher Greene and my 18th year as an art teacher I am still constantly amazed by the level of creativity in my students. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in drawing at Kansas State University and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and instruction from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. When I am not teaching art, my students inspire me to create art in my own studio. They are truly my inspiration. Some people only dream of meeting their favorite artists, I teach mine.
