About Me

carderSecond Generation Art Teacher born, raised, relocated, and live in Burley. So I drive the extra mile(s) to provide a unique learning experience for my students. I bring a desire to see the details in everything while understanding that everything is a learning process and the only true failure is giving up on something. I strive to make the projects themselves a personal choice for the students whenever possible and encourage them to go outside their comfort zone to enhance their creativity and motor skills.
