I am currently in my second year as the K-6 art teacher at the Johnson Creek Elementary and Middle Schools. Along with teaching art, I have a variety of extracurricular roles; I coach JV Girls Basketball, Middle School Track, and Run Club and I’m an advisor for Elementary Student Council. I received my bachelors in art education from UW-Platteville and have a goal of earning a masters.
When Johnson Creek School District transitioned this year to personalized learning K-12 I was eager to switch from a teacher directed classroom to a choice based art studio. I’ve delved into TAB (K-6) and am amazed every day by my students.
As a newer teacher, the WAEA has been a blessing and an invaluable resource. Through various conferences, workshops, and idea exchanges, I’ve created an amazing circle or art educators!
I believe that we as art educators, are so lucky to have the opportunity to teach our youth to think creatively, collaborate, and problem solve through the arts. In return, I have learned so much from my students and couldn’t imagine any other career!
