I have taught in the area of art and design for thirty years and I have proudly served the students of iForward, Wisconsin’s Online Charter School, for a decade. My Bachelor’s degree is from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire in the area of comprehensive art education. I am also achieving a graduate certificate in E-learning for Educators from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. During my career I have had the opportunity to enroll in many diverse courses that have inspired enthusiasm in the way I instruct my own students. I have attended several universities in the state of Wisconsin and Minnesota, as well as, attending a university in England.
I am married to John, a retired educator, who enjoys motorcycle rides and gardening. We have three daughters. Two are successful professional artists and one is an apprentice to a cheese maker in Door County (One day she will be a licensed cheese maker in the state of Wisconsin, how appropriate!) My hobbies are family time, making art and playing with my three dogs!
To become a fully engaged citizen in this society I encourage all iForward students to seek experiences in music, dance, theater, and the visual arts. It will not only free your mind from the stress that comes from daily routines, but it will enrich your life and help you to discover all that is beautiful about you and the world.
