Caring for students goes far beyond the content I am teaching.
My teaching philosophy begins with the well being of students. I create a safe, interactive, and project based environment to encourage independent, inspired learning. In the classroom, students are given the opportunity to be artists and own the art studio. When given instruction and direct on material use, technique, and ideation scaffolding, students are held accountable to create their own work.
Here are examples of what wraps up my teaching mission:
Student Centered Learning
The emphasis of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics)
