I am so excited to start my first year here at Coder Elementary as the very first art teacher on campus! I am so grateful to be here in Aledo and to begin this wonderful program here with your little ones.
I will be teaching my students the elements of art, different mediums and how to utilize them, as well as care of art supplies. We will also be learning about different artists, cultures, and movements throughout art's history.
A little bit about my professonal experience is that I am a graduate of Tarleton State University and I am currently working on my MAE ( Master of Art Education) through Texas Tech University. I began teaching three years ago and I have taught in both Boyd ISD and Weatherford ISD as a middle school art teacher. Before I began teaching I was a paraprofessional here in Aledo at the DNGC and I am so excited to finally make my way back into this wonderful district! I have loved art since the young age of 7 and I am thrilled to share my passion as an educator.
Aside from my love of art I also have a love of animals! I currently have eight chickens (Ms. Puff, Polli, Prim, Scarlett, Prissy, Ranger, Boots and Mike), 2 horses (Doc and Dandy) and a precious Blue Heeler (Gus). They all hold a very special place in my heart and I am sure they will come up in classroom conversations many times throughout the year!
I can't wait to meet all of my students and to show them the great little artists they can be!
