I am the Art Teacher at Pine Brook School, where I teach my artists for one 36-day Cycle semester. The mission of the MERS Art department is to develop a student’s imagination while nurturing and building upon skills and concepts important for self-expression. We encourage students to discover their own artistic style while becoming innovative problem solvers and creative critical thinkers. We empower students to cultivate a lifelong appreciation of the visual arts by exploring the elements of art and the principles of design in artworks and in the environment.

In 6th Grade Art, we explore the creative process and history of arts and culture, art-making media and techniques, and aesthetic response and critique methodologies. Pine Brook School also puts a strong focus on integrated education, fostering interdisciplinary connections between the students' Art lessons and other academic content areas.

I think being a teacher is the best job in the world! It is absolutely rewarding to see my students create works of art and reach new heights. In my class, artists achieve success through passion and perseverance. Artistic talent of every level is welcome!
