Hello All! I am not afraid to say that I have the best job in the world! I have been teaching elementary art (K-5th) Wisconsin since 2011. I feel truly blessed to teach in a school district that puts so much value in the arts! I get to see my amazing students every three days for a 40-45minute class.
My husband and I currently have one dog Dali, and are keeping very busy with our first child who was born in May 20015.
I am hoping this blog will be a way to showcase my students talented work as well as give some art teachers ideas that I have found very useful in my own classroom.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.

This year I was honored to receive the Outstanding Art Educator - Elementary Level award from the Wisconsin Art Education Association. The award was presented at the fall conference in Fort Atkinson!
In the past I have presented at several Wisconsin Art Education Association Fall Conferences with sessions such as Wet Felted Beads, Edible Art, and Tips from a Beginning Teacher.
From 2012-2014 I was the Youth Art Month Co-Chair for the Wisconsin Art Education Association. It was an honor to be a part of such an amazing event that showcases so many of our talented students. During my time as a Youth Art Month Co-Chair, I was honored to receive the Award of Excellence both years from the Council for Art Education.
