I graduated from Iola High School in 1995 and Emporia State University in 2000 with a BSE in Art education.
Certified Link Crew coordinator.
I started my teaching career in Stigler, Ok as an 8-12th grade art teacher. Upon moving back to the Iola area I taught one year in a resource room at McKinley elementary and then moved to be an elementary art teacher at Lincoln and Laharpe. I came to the High school in 2009 where I am curently teaching Intro to Drawing, Principles of Illustraion, and Advanced Art classes.
I am constantly working on my own art and developing my artistic portfolio. While I have an interest in a variety of artistic styles and mediums, my work tends to be mostly two demensional and either graphite or oil paint.
