I have been teaching art to middle school at Ehrhart School for the past 8 years. I have taught art for 17 years. I have the privilege of serving the entire student population. I am looking forward to getting to know each and every student at Ehrhart!
My teaching career began at the elementary level where I taught each child enrolled at DeQuincy Elementary School (approx. 800 students) in the small town of DeQuincy, La. I moved to Beaumont, TX in 1999 and taught middle school and high school art. In 2005 I stepped out of the classroom and worked as an independent artist/interior decorator. I returned to the classroom in 2012 and have been here at Ehrhart ever since.
I am the proud mother of two sons and one daughter all of whom have flown the nest and are making their way in the world. I love dogs and have two, Duke and Denton. We also have a cat, Shadow who is the coolest cat ever.
When not at school, I enjoy pursuing my own creative interests which include making art, writing, interior design and decorating . I am constantly puttering around my home and garden busy doing something. When I’m able to, I enjoy travel, especially with my children.
