I have been teaching art to children and adults of all ages since 1975. I received my degree in Art Education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and began my career by teaching middle school and high school Art in my hometown of Harrisburg. I married into a family of Montessorians and quickly learned the beauty and benefits of the Montessori philosophy. When my youngest daughter was a pre-school student at MCHD in 1995, the position of art teacher became available and I enthusiastically joined the staff. In my free time, I enjoy painting, interior design, yoga and ballroom dancing. I am married to Patrick and am the mother of three daughters, Tessa, Alisha, and Sophie.
