Welcome to the new year 2017-2018! I am beginning my 27th year at Elkhart ISD. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Houston, and my teaching certificate from the University of North Texas. I have worked briefly in the graphic arts field, but nothing compares to seeing the amazing things my students do every day. I have spent my entire teaching career in Elkhart ISD as a self-contained fifth grade teacher for 11 years and now as art specialist. I truly believe that it is "A Great Place to Learn!"
