I have been teaching in Maine for over 20 years. During this time, I have worked with students of all ages and with a range of abilities. After starting my teaching career as the Gifted and Talented Coordinator for MSAD #31 (Howland, Enfield, and Burlington), I completed all the coursework for a Middle Level Math Endorsement. My most recent position before coming to Ellsworth Elementary School in 2015, was as the teacher of gifted and talented students for Deer Isle/Stonington Elementary School.
I received my Master's degree in Art Education and Sociology from U.Maine, Orono in 1993. My thesis paper was entitled "Art as Sacred Expression, A Channel to the Divine."
