I am the Art Teacher at Carlos Fuentes, and I am in my 7th year in this position. I received a BFA in Theatre Studies, and a Minor in Art History from DePaul University. I also have a Masters in Elementary Education from DePaul, and endorsements in both Art and Drama Education. There’s a lot that I am proud of at Fuentes, but something that stands out is the amazing extra curricular/after school programming that we provide for our students, including the activity closest to my heart- our Drama Club and school play. My hope and dream for my students is that they learn the value of their ideas and opinions, and have confidence in their ability to express themselves effectively. My goal as a teacher is to provide my students with some creative and meaningful tools for sharing their voices and connecting with the world around them.
