art teacher
Because I teach in a school with a high poverty rate, my students often do not have the opportunities that their wealthier counterparts might have. I need cameras and printing supplies to teach them that elements and principles of design through photography.
My Philosophy:
At the end of each school day, I want to look back and say, "Today, I made a difference!"

Employment History:
I have been teaching, either full-time and part-time, since 1977. Obviously I love teaching to be in it this long!
Why Do I Teach?:
Teaching is a profession in which a person can make a difference in the lives of young people. It is a huge responsibility with great rewards. I have a firm belief that everyone can be successful in art. That success in art often breeds life-long intellectual curiousity.
