I have been teaching Art for over 18 years in the Moline School District in Illinois. I have a BA degree in Art Education and a MEd degree in Education & Technology. I love Art and Technology - it's a great combination! I enjoy coming up with new projects and ideas for the students and I to get creative with. Personally I enjoy many different art mediums. Acrylic painting is perhaps my favorite, but I’ve never met a visual art form I didn’t enjoy.
