I am a middle school art teacher in Walled Lake, MI. I received a BFA in studio art with a focus on Photography from Michigan State University. A certification in Art Education from Eastern Michigan University, and Masters Special Education from the University of Michigan. I believe that Art is an essential element in every persons life. It is through creative thinking that society has been able to create unique world changing thoughts, events and products. In this day and age art is an important educational aspect for each of our students.
