My professional story started animating, designing, and illustrating. However, with much passion and enthusiasm that professional stories moved on to educating. As a natural inquirer the transition has been made easier teaching in the MYP and PYP. Young minds are awesome, inspiring and great to be around. While I've always been a teacher, my journey as an educator has lead me into teaching MYP Design and Elementary Instructional Technology internationally. Coaching varsity basketball, softball, and volleyball is most likely where you'll find me after school or on weekends.
I still keep my professional design skills sharp, not only with sketches on the white board. Occasionally I take on design projects, particularly for smaller organizations or services I believe make the world a better place, typically pro bono. So any time I have to paint a canvas, mural, or train (my Mom's never been a fan of that one) it refreshes my soul.
