I am the art teacher at Bedminster school 2019-2020 school year. I have taught Art for the past 16 years first starting off in Elizabeth NJ for 11 of those years in education. I love Bedminster and very happy with the transition and the community and staff here is amazing. I am married with two beautiful little girls and besides teaching , have a mural business as well as thriving painted shoe/ purse business and skin care company. I am the kind of person that can't sit still and love to get my hands into different things. I want to show my girls they can do anything they set their minds too.
As an art teacher I believe art is in the eye of the beholder and each individual is creative in their own way. I try to push my students to explore new techniques and genres. My door is always open if a student needs extra help.
For the past 5 years I have been involved in the school s musicals creating scenery and helping behind the scene. This years show is Mary Poppins and can't wait to get started on the production. If you are motivated and a team player I would love have you join us this year.
