Hello! I am the art teacher at Julian Newman and SPARK Academy. Not a day goes by that I do not realize how fortunate I am to be able to teach a subject I love at two AWESOME schools! Art was a refuge for me as a child, and I hope that my students feel that way about art when they come to my class. I began teaching both Art and Music at Cowart Elementary in 2005. I have been teaching Art at SPARK Academy and Julian Newman since 2014. I am married and have three children: Caleb, Hannah, and John Michael. I enjoy reading, singing, painting, and gardening in my spare time.
