Life Before Thomas Jefferson High School

I’ve been teaching visual arts for the past twelve years in Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Colorado. Before I started at TJ, I was teaching elementary art at Schmitt Elementary School, STEM School Highlands Ranch and Powderhorn Elementary School.  I’m also a freelance photographer, acrylic painter, and I’m represented by the Bitfactory Gallery in Denver as a visual artist.  I’m passionate about yoga and I studied to become a Yoga Teacher (RYT 200).  Some of my hobbies are making art, taking photos, riding my bicycle, hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding, cooking and gardening.
