What brought you to CASA?

I am drawn to the idea of CASA as a place for students to create themselves. I look forward to working with creative students.

I worked for the CAIU at Diakon Center Point. I taught both English and Special Education.

The students!

 

What is your connection to the arts? How are you an artist?

I search for ways to express my creativity. My recent projects include recycling furniture and rehabbing pieces for my family. I also love landscaping/gardening. My high school experience included spending as much time as I could in the pottery room.

What do you feel is your impact on our school community, students, and culture?

My passion for teaching and connecting with students.

Never stop learning!
