I chose Art Education because of my passion for both teaching and Art. Teaching Art allows me to be flexible in the content I teach, constantly making connections to anything from cultural traditions around the world to the food web in the ocean. I am able to be a designer, leader, manager, caregiver, innovator, and often a counselor. It is a very rewarding job and there is never a dull moment. I taught for 3 years in Stockton, California after I graduated college. The experience I gained helped propel me into my current position. I am more grateful now for my job in my home state and wouldn't have it any other way.
