• Hi..Welcome to my web-site.  I am starting my 31st year of teaching ART in the Anoka-Hennepin School District.   I can't believe it has been that many years already and I love working with all of my students and teaching them art.  I started out at Sandburg Middle School fresh out of college and since then have taught in many of the elementary schools.  I have been working full time at Andover Elementary for the past 19 years and am so grateful to be here.  I received my Bachelor of Science ART Degree from the University of MN/Moorhead and Masters in LHDT from University of St. Thomas.  I am married to Steve (34 years) and have 2 children Abby (27) and Peter (24).  We have a new puppy (Perry) and I love to: garden, watercolor paint, create beaded jewelry, do photography and spend time traveling.  Thank you for supporting your student's ART EDUCATION!  I am very excited for a great year and helping your child grow in the world of art.
