Favorite Bible Verse

Corinthians 13:1-13 – Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Favorite Book

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

What is your favorite part about teaching/working at SCPS?

My favorite part about teaching is watching them grow as young artists and individuals. I especially love when a student has an “ah-ha moment” after they have been working so hard to get to their end goal.

What is the best trip you’ve ever taken and why?

When I was 17 I took a 2 1/2 week trip across  Europe with my uncle. I greatly enjoyed soaking in all the art and culture each country had to offer.
