About Me

My husband and I recently moved from Boston, MA to Detroit, MI. We both currently teach in inner-city schools. I am an art teacher and teach grades K-8. I love my job, but always make sure that I have enough time to create my own art after school and on the weekends. I've always loved looking at and creating small pieces of art..so I've recently become interested in ATCs. Even thought I'm new to ATCs and swapping, I'm not new to art! I've been painting, drawing and printmaking for many years.

I just invited you to be a member of Classroom ATC. Have you ever thought it would be fun to have you kids trade art with other students from around the world. I'm an art teacher from Minnesota, USA and I want to do a ATC trade with other art teachers so we can have a professional conversation to see if Swap-bot might assist in Classroom ATC Trades. Join our swap and group if you want to learn more.
