I LOVE being a part of the SHS iLead team on campus. As a part of iLead team we’ve enjoyed this year attending the METC 2016 Conference, and EDcamp STL,
In April I attended The Missouri Art Educators PD at Southeast Missouri State University.
This summer I traveled to DESE’s Arts Education Professional Development Day in Poplar Bluff, MO and the “Let’s Go MO Symposium,” in Joplin, MO.
This will be my 15th year here at Sikeston High School.
I have a 20+ year background in Corporate Management and Graphic Arts. I am delighted that this portion of my life allows me to influence my students preparing for the workforce.
As a working artist I love to sculpt, paint, and design using multiple mediums. On my down time I like to read, walk, golf, travel, and spending time with my family. Thanks to my children, I have expanded my traveling. Last summer one relocated to Seattle WA and then this summer, another moved to Baltimore MA.
