Hi West Wing Artists and Parents!!
I have been teaching Art here at West Wing since the school opened in March of 2006. I have LOVED spending all these years at West Wing watching your children grow up in the art room! I feel like I have a very large extended family here at West Wing and I feel very lucky to be here. I am married and have 3 daughters, all who have attended West Wing School! My oldest graduated from U of A and my middle and youngest daughter are currently at U of A (do you see a pattern here? My husband and I also went to U of A so we are a WILDCAT family for sure ;))
Our family also includes a VERY active rescue dog (pit bull/lab) named Wheatley (named after the villain robot in the PORTAL video game, I got overruled on that one ;)) . Hobbies of mine include reading, art and crafts ( of course! ) and being outdoors.
I am so excited for this year! Last year was a rough one but we made it and I am looking forward to seeing all of your faces again and meeting all of our new students at West Wing! I will be continuing to upload all of the artwork your student creates in art on ARTSONIA. IF you are new to West Wing and aren't familiar with Artsonia, click the link and check our all of the incredible art our West Wing Artists create!! West Wing's Artsonia Gallery Artsonia gives me the opportunity to show you and your family and friends the wonderful things your artist/artists have created and also lets you know all about the project, including what materials were used and the steps the artists took to create it! I usually photograph and upload upwards of 4,000 projects a year schoolwide so you will definitely be getting some emails from Artsonia as I upload new projects!
I am looking forward to a GREAT year in ART!
