New Braunfels High School
Visual Arts Instructor
The classes I teach are Art I, Art II and 3D Design. My degree is in Studio Art, and I graduated from Troy State University in Troy, AL. My teaching certification is All-Level Art, and I have been teaching for 11 years. I absolutely love art! Everything about art and design interests me, but mostly I enjoy creating. My job is the best ever, I get to spend my day helping others create works of art and build skills that will help them succeed in life!
The arts are an extremely important part of a child's development. They help to build strong creativity, innovation, and problem solving skills that can help them in many other areas of school and life. How can you solve a complex scientific problem without the ability to think creatively and be innovative? Artistic design is an exploration of innovation and originality. These skills help students develop mental images that in turn help them solve problems. Each project that we do in class requires the student to use high level critical thinking skills to develop a way to accomplish the task. The Collegeboard has conducted studies that show students that have engaged in 4 years of art or music perform higher on the SAT. Art is important, even for the non-artist! And I will let you in on another secret...it's a lot of fun too!
