Welcome to McAuliffe Art! This is my 8th year teaching Art at McAuliffe and my 16 year in Lewisville ISD. I attended Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas and received a BSE in Elementary Education. I have always had a passion for art and took many art classes throughout college and am certified to teach art Kindergarten-12th grade in the state of Texas. I am a member of the Texas Art Educators Association and attend many art conferences and workshops throughout the school year. I enjoy painting, drawing, knitting and creating on my own time as well.
I have 3 children. My son, James, is a junior at Texas A&M and majors in business and finance. My daughter, Charlece, is a sophomore at Ouachita Baptist University and is studying to be an elementary teacher. My son, Sam, is in his last year at McAuliffe. My husband works for LISD and has two daughters. Natalie is a junior at Marcus high school and Avery is a freshman in college.
In my free time, I enjoy playing board games with my family, traveling, painting and going to museums around our area. I love the Dallas Museum of Art and it has free admission!
When I was a child, I didn't have an art teacher until 3rd grade. I remember loving school and loving art class! I can remember cool clay projects, painting landscapes, and how my teacher would display all our work. My passion is to educate all students and help them find and grow their own talents. I love teaching and I love kids.
