Bio

I am an artist and an educator. I have been painting and creating for over 30 years. I recently completed teacher training at Mills College as a Secondary Visual Arts Teacher. I believe that art is informed by all academic subjects and in turn art can be used to describe any academic subject. It is a valuable tool for science, language, social sciences, and humanities; as well as, literature and math.

I am an artist and an educator. I have been painting and creating for over 30 years. I recently completed teacher training at Mills College as a Secondary Visual Arts Teacher. I believe that art is informed by all academic subjects and in turn art can be used to describe any academic subject. It is a valuable tool for science, language, social sciences, and humanities; as well as, literature and math.
I have taught students as young as 4 up to age 72 to make art. Currently I am teaching at a small private high school for independent learners in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a lifelong learner and I approach teaching in a diological manner. Students should be engaged and interested rather than standardized and tested.

I studied English as passionately as I studied art in school. In addition to college writing and critical composition I studied literary theory, Shakespeare, and poetry. I took four semesters of creative writing in which I discovered that poetry and prose based creative non-fiction is my favorite form of writing to create.
During my teacher training I took a course about teaching English language learners and I student taught at Oakland International High School. Academic language was incorporated into grade 10 Studio Art. I learned that newcomer students from all over the world were able to access language as they learned about art and making it.

If you are struggling with making sense of a text for any subject I can help you with annotation and dialogue about parts of the text that you are struggling to understand. Learn to unpack the meaning of written word. I have several strategies to help with organization so that writing essays and full research papers can be done without fear. Thesis statements, outlines, content, and citations can become overwhelming. Let me help you find your voice on the page.
