What brought you to teaching children:
The Universe, God, and my love for art and seeing happy, healthy children!
Favorite book, as an adult, and why:
The Runaway Bunny. I love the illustrations and art in the book.
Creative curriculum (something you do to personalize curriculum, annual project…):
Make curriculum authentic to student need and to real-life content. A fun project I do annually is Magical Bird. It involves creating 30 paper birds with watercolor to add texture and color! We then mount them onto cardstock and frame.
