I am so excited to be teaching art at the Otis Elementary School! I have been teaching in Boston Public Schools for more than 20 years and love watching students develop a life long love of learning. This year students will explore and create art that reflects their individual interpretation of famous art work as we study artists and art history. Our curriculum will focus on social emotional skills with a connection to literature. Students in grades 2-6 will be taking part in the "One Word Project" where they choose one word to motivate them academically and emotionally throughout the year. When I'm not teaching, I love riding my bike, traveling, and reading on the beach.
