I started teaching Elementary Art at AASD in 1991. Juniata has been one of my schools since day 1. I travel to various elementary schools within the district to teach art to students in Kindergarten through 6th grade. At some point over the years, I have taught at all the AASD elementary schools. I currently teach at Juniata, Juniata Gap, Penn-Lincoln, and the McAuliffe Heights program at Irving. I see the students for art class for 30 minutes every 10 school days.
I am a 1985 graduate of the Hollidaysburg Area School District. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education K-12 from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1989, and a Master's of Education degree from Saint Francis University in 1995. I also hold the elected position of Treasurer for the Altoona Area Education Association since 2012.
