Hello families!

I am excited to join Costaño as your child’s ART teacher this year. Prior to joining Costaño, I was the art teacher at Brentwood Academy for the past 7 years. In 2013, I moved across the country from South Florida where I taught for 13 years with most of my experience teaching K-5 Art .  I taught Kindergarten and PE for a year each as well.  

Here’s a little bit about me...

I grew up and went to school  in Michigan, but spent most summers with my mom’s side of the family on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawai’i. Both of my parents are retired elementary teachers and my sister is a preschool director. I guess you could say teaching or working with children is our family’s passion.
 
My favorite thing to do is spend time near the ocean. I love to CREATE, travel, hike, watch movies, spend time with my family & friends. More recently however,  I have found a love for finding local adventures, reading, crocheting, gardening & cooking local foods.

Everyone is an artist, you just have to discover your “art”. It could be drawing, painting, creating, dance, music, or drama. It could be writing, solving math problems, or the ability to connect & communicate with others... My job as an educator is to help you find your passion &  assist in the development of skills necessary to pursue what inspires you.
