Hi, I am an artist, wife, mom, gamer and the Elementary Art Educator at Donald Elementary, a sweet and wonderful school in Flower Mound, TX (outside of Dallas). This is a great place to see how we are integrating studio habits with technology and interdisciplinary connections. I also love to share my "wisdom" (Re: Experiences. From mistakes.) about teaching Elementary Art. I love what I do, and I've been doing it for a long time. Creating and teaching Art is what I live for. Enjoy.

Looky what I did. *giggle*

Ok, so check this out---


Seriously, when I post, I pretend no one is reading. My own mother doesn't even follow this blog. My blog says I have, like, I don't know, 22 followers (thanks Bloglovin' and Feedly! I know I have more! Huh.)Imagine my surprise when I was asked to be a guest blogger on our district's 1:X website?! Me? Have you read my stuff? I talk about Star Trek waaay too much.

This means I get to be a huge (loud) voice for Donald Elementary and Art(s) Education! I am going to be shining a huge (loud) spotlight on us, so buff up. THIS. IS. HAPPENING. PEOPLE.

A year ago I was fumbling around with blogging. Jessica at Art of Ed and Tricia Fuglestad have inspired me so much. (Jessica actually helped me set up my blog--she is a rock star.)Thanks to these awesome art educators, we art teachers here in LISD can raise our roof. Promote and model what we are already doing!

I intend to stay true to my goal of demonstrating practical ways to incorporate tech with traditional art making. Messy hands and clean iPads. It can work.

Keep checking it out. And send me your cool stuff!

  2. Yeah! Congrats and I read your blog and enjoy it! :)
