Art Teacher


This will be my third year teaching at Spring Mills Primary. I taught preschool for four

Years and spent my summers as a Summer Camp Director for elementary age students. Prior to becoming a teacher, I was a graphic designer for ten years. I created many of the graphics for vending machines, NFL, and NASCAR.


I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Masters in Elementary Education. I have been interested in art since I was in the fifth grade. I even tried my best to recreate Michelangelo’s painting of the Sistine Chapel on the ceiling of my sixth grade teacher’s classroom for a history project!


I grew up in Shepherdstown, but moved to the mountain in Harpers Ferry when I got married. I have a daughter in middle school and a son in fourth grade.
