My Education and Professional Background

On my way to Tucson in 1984 I ran out of gas in Tempe and decided to stay. I received both a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1987) and a Masters of Education in Educational Media & Computers (1997) from Arizona State, both were years ASU made a Rose Bowl appearance. I have taught high school art since 2005 and computer graphics at Chandler-Gilbert Community College since 2000. I feel Chandler has the most challenging and robust fine arts programs in the East Valley.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe study in the visual arts challenges students to think creatively, develop intuition, and become visual problem-solvers. I have found the method of facilitating rather than dictating to be a highly beneficial style of teaching. I adjusting my teaching practices as appropriate, on the basis of observation and with knowledge of a student's interests, abilities, skills, knowledge, and family circumstances. I'm grateful to be able to work with Chandler High students and will continue to strive to be a positive influence in their lives.
