About Jennifer

I am a mother of three: 24 (girl), 22(girl) and 17(boy). As a stay-at-home mother, I have been very active in my children’s schools and saw firsthand what successful teachers did to connect with their students. I had the opportunity to help out in my children’s elementary classrooms, to be a volunteer middle school track coach, and math tutor, and was a Girl Scout Leader for 5 years. Through these experiences, I have learned the impact teachers can have on our children.

Teachers have the power to change lives. With this knowledge, I made the choice to return to college to continue my education, and eventually return to the workforce to share my love of art with our young people.

Art can be a vehicle which gives children a sense of belonging, accomplishment, and success. By exploring new techniques,studying other cultures, and reflecting on their inner selves, students will unlock their creativity and gain
self-confidence that will expand into all arenas of their lives.

My educational background has prepared me for the role of art educator. Beyond my education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as an art education major, I have spent the last year substitute teaching, and I have worked as a glass and metal artist for the last 12 years.

Art should be fun...and educational...but mostly fun. We all learn more when we are enjoying ourselves! Let's learn together.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

Drawing

I graduated with a degree in Art Education and am certified in Wisconsin as a K-12 art teacher. Included in my coursework at UW-Madison were 10 credits of drawing, 2 dimensional design, and 8 credits of painting, plus many other studio courses. I have worked as a substitute art teacher in 4 different school districts over the past year, in addition to 3 semesters of student teaching and/or practicum work in area schools.
