Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Students and Families,
I am so excited to be at Memorial Junior School teaching Contemporary Art and Design. I recently moved to New Jersey from Houston, Texas, where I taught middle school art and design for 3 years. I am a practicing artist and crafter in my free time. I have a Bachelor's of Art from the University of Houston with a minor in Education.
In Contemporary Art & Designs students will focus on the skills of sewing, cooking, and design.
Students will learn about nutrition, grocery budgeting, and how to read and cook a basic recipe.
6th grade students will learn basic handsewing skills.
7th and 8th grade students will learn basic machine sewing skills.
Students will use digital design tools to create projects related to food and sewing as well as safety.
In my classroom I place an emphasis on growth over perfection. Students are encouraged to give their best effort and to learn from their mistakes as they learn new skills that will be a lifelong benefit to them.
