I was always the 'artsy' kid in class. I doodled on every paper ever handed to me. I use tons of scotch tape and was always borrowing my mom's scissors. I came from a family of craftsmen and craftswomen; everyone did something with their hands, just for fun. It was pretty natural to become an artist and art teacher. Everyone in my family was a teacher. I am the first ART teacher in the family.
In the summers, I try to work on an ongoing body of art for exhibitions. I also teach computer arts in a gifted and talented program for middle schoolers, held at CSUS. This year I get to go to SCAD and BE a student in art!!

.....if you will. How did you choose to become an art teacher? And, when the
school day or year is over, what do you do for yourself, artwise.
