My interest in teaching comes from my genuine enjoyment of helping others and from my passion for art. I have many goals and aspirations for my teaching profession. One of those goals is to create a positive impact in each of my student’s lives. Whether that be improving their critical thinking and problem solving skills or having them become more independent thinkers and get them to realize their self-worth in art. I am currently working as the long-term ART sub at Waterloo Iowa's EXPO Alternative Learning Center.
