Degrees and Certifications:
This is my third year teaching at Pine Valley Elementary! I grew up in Buffalo, NY, and have always loved painting, drawing, and making things. After graduating from the University at Buffalo with a degree in Studio Art and minors in Art History and Education, I got my Masters Degree in Art Education from Buffalo State. Teaching art at the elementary school level has offered me the opportunity to share my love of all things art with my students. Luckily for me, they seem to share my enthusiasm for trying new things, making (sometimes messy) art, and treating the classroom as a studio space. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our cat, reading, baking, and traveling.
