I am thrilled to be joining the faculty and staff of Mount Laurel Elementary and Shelby Elementary. It was such a joy to see so many smiling faces at “Meet the Teacher” and I can’t wait to get to know all of the students and families as the school year begins.
A bit about me . . . I have always had a love for creating art, even as a small child. In college, I majored in Studio Art at Auburn University and after graduation I came home to Birmingham where I worked in publishing for a couple of years. During that time I volunteered as a docent at the Birmingham Museum of Art, and later at The Museum of Fine Art in Montgomery. Teaching the museum visitors about the art hanging in these fine museums was so exciting to me and just like that– I discovered my calling. I received my Masters in Art Education at the University of Montevallo in 2000.
I have been teaching art in Alabama’s public schools for 16 years and I look forward to continue my career here in Shelby County.
