I have been a public school teacher for 20 years. I graduated from the University of Colorado, received my teaching credential and MA from San Francisco State University, received Fulbright-Hays Summer Fellowships to both China (1991) and India (1999) and achieved National Board Certification in 1996 in the area of Adolescence and Young Adulthood Art.
For twenty years I taught in public schools in Menlo Park and Mountain View California as well as at San Jose State University where I was the Director of the San Jose State University California Arts Project.
In 2014, I facilitated the writing of the Visual Arts Standards for AERO, a project supported by the U.S. State Department's Office of Overseas Schools. I am now the lead trainer for School Loop [www.schoolloop.com]
