The best thing about teaching: I have an opportunity to give students a venue to embrace their artistic talents, to find a love of the arts and truly value their work they produce.
Some of my favorite things:
- Color: All of them!
- Food: All vegetables except Brussels sprouts & eggplant
- Book: Talisman by Stephen King
- Subject: Art of course
- Hobby: Anything artistic
- Sports Team: Seattle Seahawks
If I wasn’t a teacher, I would be: Creating and promoting my own art.
Why did you choose to become a teacher?
Personally, the most important part of teaching art for me is to make students love art as much as I do.
