I’ve always loved stories, art, and solving puzzles. With code I get to bring my characters to life, add motion to my art and use my problem solving skills to create new projects. When I teach I like to use the things my students love to encourage them to be as passionate about the projects as I am. With the training and experience I gained while obtaining my Masters degree in School Counseling I’ve learned to listen to what the students have to say and put the focus on each of their individualized ways of learning. As a former K-8 Art teacher I love to foster creative exploration into whatever peaks their interest. In addition to teaching with Create & Learn, I’m currently a Freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator. My goal is to help students to appreciate the presence and importance of Design in their everyday lives.
