I am thrilled to be in my 5th school year at HPCA! Prior to coming here I taught elementary and middle school art for about 10 years in Philadelphia and Suburban schools. I resigned from full-time art teaching in order to spend more time with my 2 boys and to start a pottery business. After a few years away from teaching, I began to miss it. Teaching part-time at HPCA, in a community I care deeply about, is the perfect fit.
God is the Master creator, and as we are made in His image we are born with desire to create. I enjoy teaching our children at HPCA the skills and techniques they can use to bring out all the creativity and ideas they have within. No matter what the students' natural artistic abilities are, I strive to build an art environment in which each child can enjoy the process of making art and learning new skills and ideas.
