I am a National Board Certified Art Teacher. I renewed my certification in 2017 and currently work with the Alabama NT3 program supporting National Board Candidates.
I am working on a Doctorate of Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Alabama. My dissertation explores how elementary teachers implement STEAM teaching strategies in the classroom.
I am a creative, high energy teacher who LOVES to take on big projects!
