Right out of college, I was fortunate enough to get a teaching position at West Salem High School. I have been working with high school artists since 2000.
Working with high school students is an exciting and fulfilling part of my life. I am consistently grateful to be around artists who develop new ideas and techniques. It is their enthusiasm and dedication to their art that inspires me on a daily basis.
Recently, I have been given the opportunity to teach some art education courses at Viterbo. I am thankful to be a part of the college community that shaped my beliefs in art education. I am also grateful to have a supportive school district who is committed to the creative endeavors of its students. My colleagues in the West Salem Art Department are amazing people who are supportive of any adventure we embark on in the high school art world.
When I am not teaching, I can be found in my garage studio working on my own art, or out playing music in and around the La Crosse area.
