I am an art teacher at Terry High School. This year I am teaching Art I, Art II, and III/ AP Studio Design, and AP Art History.   I began teaching at THS in 2000.  I left THS in 2007 and returned in 2010.  Leaving Terry only strengthened my opinion that our school has some of the smartest and most creative students in the state.

I grew up in Cleveland, Ms where I graduated from Cleveland High School.  I attended Delta State University and graduated with a Degree in Art from Belhaven College.  I pursued my Masters of Art with a focus on Art Therapy from the University of Illinois in Chicago.  I worked in Mental Health and Alternative School settings for several years before becoming an art instructor at Terry High School.

 I enjoy drawing, painting and working in a variety of materials when I create art.  In my art classes I try to expose my students to as many art materials and artists  as possible.  Art is a subject that has connections to Math, English, Science, and History.  I believe that the art making process provides people with an opportunity to express and explore information about themselves.   I design my projects with my students in mind.  I want my students to explore the possibilities of creating and how they can express thoughts, opinions, and emotion through art making.
