  • About the Art Teacher...
     Hello! I’m the art teacher at Grove and Sugar Creek Elementary Schools. I received my Bachelors in Art Education from Illinois State University, and my Masters in Art Education from University of Florida (online program).
    I have been teaching elementary art for eight years, and began my career in Chicago. I am super excited to be back in Bloomington-Normal with my husband, two little boys, and cat! 

    In my spare time I like to ride my bike, knit, listen to music, and be with my family. 

    Grove is a participating Artsonia school. Currently our program is with kindergarten and first grade artists. My hope is to grow this program every year so that eventually all my students have an online portfolio. Please check out the link below for more!
