Well, welcome to art.  Get EXCITED!



I've been teaching in Valley View for the past 15 years 13 at Jane Addams and 3 at Humphrey. 

I've coached the Track and Field team and the Cross Country team since it's inception in 2004. I also am in charge of the Winter Running Club, Art Club, and DJ Club.

I enjoy comic books, I write about movies for various websites, and do freelance art in my spare time.
