    About me: This is my third year as a full-time Art Teacher for Augusta County Schools. From August - January I am the Art Teacher at Guy K. Stump Elementary School in Stuarts Draft, and from January to the end of the school year I am the Art Teacher here at Verona. I LOVE MY JOB and am working hard to develop a developmentally appropriate and balanced art curriculum that is relevant, and encourages personal responsibility and creative thinking...in and beyond the classroom.   
     
    Understanding art from here and other cultures is an extremely VALUABLE part of a student's education because it is a visual language that provides insight into the human experience.
    PLEASE SUPPORT THE ARTS IN OUR COMMUNITY AND SCHOOLS!!
