Welcome to Art! I am very passionate about my content area and am pleased to be able to share this with my students every day. This year I will be teaching Drawing & painting I, II, III, AP Studio Art, Intro to Art, and 8th grade AMS Sculpture. Please help yourself to class syllabi, project information, and grading rubrics. I look forward to having an excellent relationship with all parents and family so please feel free to call or email me at any time.
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from Arizona State University (Go Devils!) with both my BFA in Art Education and my MEd in Secondary Education. This year will be my eighth year here at Basha and I am so proud to be a Bear!
My Educational Philosophy
I strongly believe it to be a fundamental responsibility of educators to provide students with a wealth of diverse educational opportunities in their school experiences. Studies show that students who are engaged in the visual arts throughout their school years have increased visual/spacial abilities. These abilities can benefit anyone from a brain surgeon to an engineer.
