A successful program is all about continuous learning and sharing with parents, students, other educators, and industry experts.
I earned my BA, Phi Beta Kappa, in Art History at Colorado College and attended Art Center College of Design. After 23 years as an award-winning freelance graphic designer, I realized that I enjoyed training my teenage employees and decided to become a high school teacher. I am now in my 15th year of teaching Traditional and Digital Arts. While teaching full-time I earned her Career & Technical Certification, Masters in Teaching, and National Board Certification. I still freelance and never stop learning!
In addition to the obsessive quest to become a master in all things Adobe, I have been instrumental in organizing local high schools into a group for collaboration that will better serve the students.
I am passionate about using technology to transform education. I am involved in the ongoing challenge to engage young minds and increase literacy in a school with disadvantaged youth. I weave Reading and Writing into every lesson. I use websites, interactive Acrobat forms, and to deliver a paperless and visually rich way to reach students. I use Adobe software to create self-paced, divergent projects. I regularly shares my freelance experiences with my students and work alongside them to enforce the message that effective visual communication requires endless exploration, experimentation, and study.
