Hello!

I am currently completing a Master of Arts in Teaching (with Certification) degree at School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. 

This experience has had a tremendous impact on me both as an artist and as an individual. I have never felt more energized to engage with young people and help integrate open-minded creative thinking into the education system. 

Courses in this program have included Museum Studies, Special Populations, Materials & Methods, Arts Integrated, Teaching with Technology, and many more. For more information on the MAT program click here.
