Art Teacher
Welcome to my Art page for Patton Junior High School! 
I am glad to be a part of the Patton team and get the great opportunity to teach Art to 6th grade to 9th grade students.  This will be my 13th year of teaching Art. 
I am originally from Chillicothe, MO.  I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master of Arts in Teaching + 60 graduate hours and I am certified PreK-12th Grade Art in KS, MO, and TX. 
I have been creating Art since I could hold a crayon and still make Art daily. 
I am also glad to be the Art Teacher at Patton and teach the students of all the Soldiers and families that serve our country.  With my husband being a Veteran, we have been to Fort Riley, KS, Whiteman Air Force Base, MO, and Fort Hood, TX. 
I look forward to a great experience teaching my students how Art can help them be expressive and a well-rounded person.
I enjoy making Art and being in Art Shows and Exhibitions, singing and writing music, acting, nature, fitness, 4- wheeling, building and owning classic cars with my husband, family, and dogs/animals!
