While I was formerly a middle school math and special education teacher at GPA, my background is actually in art! I earned a B.A. from Boston College in Studio Art as well as a B.A. in Elementary Education. Then I went to The Harvard Graduate School of Education and earned a Master’s Degree in Arts in Education. After that, I earned a Master’s Degree in Special Education at Lesley University. I have always loved to create, even when I was very young. In my personal time, I oil paint and sculpt. I also love to swim, bike, and run. I am very excited to have qualified to run the Boston Marathon this year. I am even more thrilled to be GPA's visual art teacher!
It is an honor to get to teach, learn, and create with your children. Please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
The goal of visual art at GPA is:
To create universally designed and rigorous art experiences that engage all learners in authentic and culturally relevant art-making experiences, which often have components of:
· art philosophy
· art history
· community-based art
· art literacy
· exposure to various media…
With the intention that the arts are valued as a subject in and of itself and something that is worth sustaining in a K-8 school.El objetivo del arte visual en el GPA es:
