M.F.A.,Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts
I am a Digital & Fine Arts Teacher at GHS. In addition to my classes, I am an advisor for the Class of 2021 (Seniors!), National Art Honor Society, and the Yoga Club. In addition to teaching at GHS, I also teach at Rowan University and I am a practicing artist in the field. I have a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Previous to my MFA I received my undergraduate degree from Rowan University where I dual majored in Studio Arts and Education with a minor in Art History. During my time at Rowan, I had the opportunity to live and study abroad at the Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy. In 2017 I was awarded artist-in-residence in San Ramon, Costa Rica. I love the arts and love teaching all about them! Please feel free to reach out at any time with questions!
"When we teach a child to sing or play the flute, we teach her how to listen. When we teach her to draw, we teach her to see. When we teach a child to dance, we teach him about his body and about space, and when he acts on a stage, he learns about character and motivation. When we teach a child design, we reveal the geometry of the world. When we teach children about the folk and traditional arts and the great masterpieces of the world, we teach them to celebrate their roots and find their own place in history." - Jane Alexander, National Endowment for the Arts
