Please take a minute to read below a few questions she answered for our Spotlight!
Why did you become an art docent?
I had an art history minor in college. Love sharing art with the kids.
What event has been your favorite?
Probably the art show. Amazing to see all the artwork we gather. Our kids are great!
What is a favorite classroom memory?
I now have two granddaughters at Van Meter. So fun to present in their class. Also I also go into one of the classes that is taught by a girl who went to school with my daughter. Very special.
What grade do you like best to teach and why?
I taught pre-school at Green Hills for quite a few years and I love that age group so kindergarten is my favorite grade.
I get a kick out of doing the foil animals in kindergarten. So fun to see what the kids come up with.
Describe a memorable experience with the Art Docents
Years ago we used to have a fundraiser with dinner and a silent auction. I lot of people from the community joined us. Was a great way to let the community know what we were doing and it was a lot of fun. I miss it.
