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.
