I am so excited to kick off the new school year! The students here at NCHS are awesome, extremely creative and adaptive, so I know that we will achieve great things this year despite the challanges we are facing.

I grew up in San Antonio, TX and when I graduated from high school, I moved up to Denton, TX to attend the University of North Texas (UNT). There I studied studio art, as well as art education, minored in Spanish, and participated in intramural basketball, volleyball, and flag football. In college, I was a Resident Assistant (RA) in one of the dorms on campus and I cultivated my love for helping others to achieve their goals and make their dreams come true. Working as an RA really helped me to realize that I wanted to continue to have that same kind of impact on young people. What better way to achieve this than to teach a subject that I am passionate about, and that I know has the power to inspire, support, and heal!

In my Art class, we will explore, understand, and produce quality artwork utilizing the Elements of Art and Principles of Design through Color Theory, Drawing, Painting, 2-D and 3-D Design. However, art is more than simply drawing well; it's about discovery, creativity, expression, and so much more! I can hardly wait to explore all the places that art will take us this year!

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."
