As a studio art, computer digital graphics and information technology teacher, I realize the importance of providing my students with a quality education and positive role models. My job is to ensure that my students learn the curriculum and understand that learning can be fun. By using diverse instructional strategies I hope to make the curriculum easy to retain. I hope to inspire, motivate and help my students think critically and creatively. I want them to be able to create unique works that are pieces they can be proud of. I want my students to become life-long learners of the arts and I want them to love being able to create with digital mediums. I strive for them to take pride in themselves and the knowledge that they will acquire in my classes. My hope is that my classroom will be a learning environment where students will feel safe and know that they can be themselves.

I once read, and firmly believe, that “education is a tool used to achieve an end, and this end is the completion of the individual as a productive,self-sustaining, cognitive member of our society."
