I provide my students with knowledge and opportunities to grow creatively. I learn from my students just as they learn from me. I myself will continue to grow and adapt each day in the classroom. As a teacher I am a work of art, ever evolving and changing.
The visual arts are essential for future generations to be capable creative thinkers and problem solvers. In teaching the visual arts, I am asking my students to look at the world around them from a different point of view.
