I currently teach the Audio Visual, Graphic & Digital Arts courses and coach UIL Journalism at Rockport-Fulton High School. I participate in the ACE program with a Press Club and an Anime Club.
I am originally from Indiana where I earned a BA from Indiana University. My graduate work was spent at Rochester Institute of Technology, The School for American Craftsmen, in New York State. This is the Eastman Kodak School where I earned a MFA. Twenty years ago I attended Texas A&M Corpus Christi for All-Level Art teacher certification. I am a life long learner and stimulated by trying new things. I am certified to teach, All Level Art, Technology Applications, Journalism, and Computer Science. To reach me by telephone, call the high school at 361.790.2220 and ask for extension 2227.
When you ask people how they are...pause and listen; or don't ask.
In my spare time... I enjoy working on my yard, and creating different projects from found and recycled objects for the home. I draw continually, to think while I'm listening and to sketch out my ideas for projects.
