Welcome to Art Parent Video 

Welcome to Art!
I look forward to teaching students enrolled in AP Art & Design, Portfolio Development, Art III/IV, Ceramics I, Advanced Sculpture & Ceramics, MS Digital Photo and Sixth Grade Art. This is my 5th year teaching at Northland Prep and my 13th year teaching art. Prior to moving to Flagstaff, I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Graceland University and taught middle and high school art courses in Missouri.  I feel fortunate that I have the opportunity to work with NPA students and share my passion for the visual arts! I love to travel, visit art galleries and museums, eat sushi, spend time with family and friends, and explore with my labrador, Belle.  I am looking forward to creating a great year with you!
