    I have been employed at Sun Valley Elementary since 2006, where I work
    with Kindergarten-5th grade teaching art. I graduated from UAB with
    a Bachelor of Arts Degree. My concentrations were in Graphic Design
    and Photography.


     I am a life-long resident of Birmingham and a product of Birmingham City Schools. 
    Teaching art is exhilarating because I work with a wide variety of students.  I
    introduce my students to the basic foundations of art.     
    We focus on exploring a variety of media.  Students at this age love to paint, so we
    spend a lot of time working with Tempera and Watercolor. I also encourage my
    students to use art to help develop and explore their imaginations.  I participate
    in Sun Valley’s after-school enrichment Art program called Bright Horizons.
