Dear Student/Parent,

I have eight years experience as a pubic school Art teacher for grades K-12. Currently, I am a substitute teacher in the Ayer/Shirley Regional School District for grades K-12 and am substituting in all subject matters. While I have my own special strengths in subject matters; my main strength is the ability to impart a love of learning in whatever subject I am involved with. I am comfortable with students with special needs, as well as with advanced learning students looking to sharpen their skills in reading for comprehension and writing.

I taught a painting class at the Medium Security Prison facility in Shirley for a period of six years. I have worked church youth groups in both Milton and Shirley. I get along well with young people and treat them with respect and consistency. Instilling a sense of possibility and a love for learning itself is the most valuable asset I have to offer; more than the specific skills I have acquired in my years in the workplace.

In addition to Art, English, History, etc., I have been a member of a running club for many years and have extensive experience in competition - which can be an asset for the physically enthusiastic youngster. I believe you will be pleased with the result if you elect to avail yourself of my services.

Subjects

Art

Drawing,

Drawing

As a former Art teacher, I have experience with the teaching of drawing. It is a positive factor in a student's self concept and drawing well can contribute to a better self image; especially for students who may be struggling in other subjects. This positive image can encourage more effort in other subjects if successfully mastered in the art realm.
Painting,

Painting

Painting can be a good way to encourage creative thinking. As opposed to drawing, which can be very precise, painting requires the participant to be more interactive to possibilities while working. Outlines become less important as color and contrast gain prominence. Being open to surprises is useful. This utilizes the creative side of the brain, whereas mathematics uses the other part of the brain. I have eight years' experience as a pubic school Art teacher for grades K-12.
