In high school I felt at home in art class, and discovered a passion and talent for the arts. Upon graduation I received the Rhode Island School of Design award for artistic excellence while maintaining high academic standing and being on the honor role. I opted out of a math class as a senior in order to take a double english class my senior year in high school because I love reading and writing so much. I went on to complete a Bachelor of Fine Art's degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, IL. I studied a wide variety of subjects including painting, drawing, social studies, writing including advanced poetry and fiction, photography, philosophy, psychology. I have lived in different places across the country and like connecting with people from a variety of backgrounds. People describe me as having a bubbly friendly personality and am very understanding. My teaching approach is one of humility - as a servant of those who I am trying to uplift, instruct, and help. I put myself in those shoes where I use to be, and my goal is to share what I know and do all I can to help others achieve the level of learning, and excellence that they can. I am writing a novel, and am working to publish a collection of poetry writing. In my spare time I like to bake and cook, and spend time outdoors.
