I have been teaching at Century Middle School since 2017 and I absolutely love sharing my passion for art and learning with Century's students! I have both Bachelor's (Miami University, OH) and Master's (Columbia University, NY) degrees in Art Education and began teaching in 2006. I have two young daughters, Avery and Charlotte, two affectionate (yet mischievous) big dogs, Ranger and Estes, and the support of my husband, John, who is an Army veteran. I am originally from Ohio, but have fallen in love with beautiful Colorado and have called it home since 2011. When I am not teaching, I am almost always exploring the outdoors with my family or painting.
