General background information (years in education, degree(s), Universities/Colleges attended): 

I am new to Polaris this year as the Elementary Art Teacher. I run a partially choice-based class as students discover themselves and new materials. They come up with their own ideas for art projects and I provide a variety of media for them to explore. 

I have my BFA in Art Photography from Syracuse University and my MA in Art and Design as well as Art education from University of Northern Colorado. 

I am very excited to be apart of this crew!

Interests/Hobbies: 

I love making art. I use a variety of media including, photography, sculpture, fiber arts, watercolor and jewelry. 

I also love walking and cuddling with my dog, Scout, and going hiking on the weekends.

I am a huge sci-fi fan so I love reading and watching awesome movies and shows.
