I taught middle school in Minnesota for 4 years with Redwood Area School District and Eagle Ridge Academy. When my husband and I moved to Chesterfield last year, I began teaching middle and high school art for Rockwood School District. When I got the opportunity last spring, I accepted my new and exciting role with Parkway Schools! This is my first year as both the K-2nd grade art teacher at McKelvey Elementary and photography teacher at West High.
Painting and photography are my favorite ways to make art. I have been painting large scale since painting sets for a local production of Annie when I was 13 years old, and I took my first photography class in college. I actually taught my husband how to develop film in our first apartment! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time outdoors, exercising, cooking, painting portraits, and hosting painting parties.
