Spring Birds!

Story
Tagline
I have been a 4th-12th grade art teacher at a small, rural school in Iowa for 22 years. I passionately believe that students benefit in so many ways from creative self expression, and it is my joy to share these ideas with others. When not teaching, I love spending time with my family, reading, baking and being creative in a variety of ways.
