What is your favorite part about the subject(s) you teach now?

I love teaching ceramics because art teaches life skills. Art teaches students how to problem solve, work in cooperative groups, focus and persevere, and to trust in their own abilities.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time?

I’m a runner. I train for and compete in several marathons each year. I find running to be therapeutic, it helps me to clear my mind.

What is the most rewarding part about working at Walker’s?

The most rewarding part about working at Walker’s is the small class sizes. This allows me to develop an intimate relationship with each of my students and personalize their art education to best suit their needs and abilities.
