Art / Arte
 
Arts Education is an integral part of the core curriculum and offers powerful tools for expression - tools for making connections between intellect and emotion, tools for bringing meaning and beauty into our lives, and tools for solving problems and communicating ideas.

    I received my MA in Early Childhood Special Education and an Education Specialist degree in Education Leadership from George Washington University, as well as a BA in Visual Arts from Smith College. I come to Claremont with 16 years of experience teaching elementary students in varied settings, of which all of them encouraged hand-on experiences. I am passionate about supporting each child in my care to become stronger, more confident thinkers, creators and innovators. In the classroom I purposely and tirelessly work to foster a sense of safety and community where children may feel comfortable enough to question, at times fail, and even grow from their art endeavors. One thing is certain. I feel very fortunate to be part of this community and working with your children. Their curiosity, energy and enthusiasm renews me daily.

    I earned a BFA in Fine Arts from the Corcoran School of Art and an MAT in Elementary Education from Trinity College, both in Washington, DC. In my free time I enjoy photography, painting, visiting museums, and being outdoors. In the last few years I've developed a passion for free-heel skiing, both downhill and cross-country. I love teaching art because it is essentially a holistic and synthetic discipline, one which involves students in imaginative problem-solving and creative expression though their whole being- body, mind and spirit.
