About Me: It never occurred to me to be anything in life but an ART TEACHER.  Many of the teachers who mentored me in my growing up were pivotal influences on my life.  I graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Art education.  My Master's degree is from Winthrop in School Counseling.  I am also a National Board Certified teacher in Elementary and Middle Years Art.  I am blessed to have two children: Elli and MeiRose.  I love the beach in an insane way. Truly.  I love summer reading and doing art for others.  I have been at Sullivan since 1991 and never thought of going anywhere else.

Learner Profile: I am a thinker.  I process constantly during the day.  I am always trying to be sure I work with all students.  I am also constantly thinking of how to make learning in art unique and meaningful.

Honors and Awards: Teacher of the Year, Related Arts Department Head
