I began my teaching career in 1996 at Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx after working as a freelance artist and stained glass restorer in NYC for thirteen years.  I have been teaching in the Ogdenburg City School District since 2000.  My primary goal as an Art Educator is to build a learning environment that supports student curiosity, engagement and authentic learning outcomes.
