As a high school art teacher, I have had the pleasure of seeing a lot of "Aha" moments experienced by my students . Not long into the school year, they discover that they are capable of tapping into their creative side and really CAN make art ....THIS is the reason I have been teaching art for 26 years.
I started right out of college with a BA teaching in a small town public high school in Southwestern Louisiana, St. Martinville Senior High. I had 180+ students my first year as the only art teacher. I taught there for five years. I stopped teaching for three years to be a mom then took a position teaching art at a Catholic High School in Lafayette, Louisiana, St. Thomas More, where I was until 2018. Kimberly Thibodeaux, the art teacher I've worked with for the past 20 years, and I are now teaching at Southside High School in Youngsville, LA and we are building an amazing art program with countless student successes there. She and I will hopefully continue to bring students to new heights.
My goal as an educator is to always seek to make a difference.
As an artist my goal is to constantly reach for more..stretch and explore and fail often because its in these trials that I discover what I am truly capable of.
