Welcome all BHS students interested in art! I am a working artist and art educator who has been teaching at Beaufort High for a number of years now. I love working with students and helping them become better artists. I teach art from the point of view that anybody, ANYBODY, can improve their drawing and design skills if they are willing to make the effort. I attempt to frame my assignments in terms of problems to be solve instead of masterpieces to be created. If some masterpieces are created on the way then all the better. I have lived in South Carolina my whole life and went to public schools. My fine arts degree and masters in art education come from the University of South Carolina. 

I am a Highly-Qualified (HQ) teacher certified in Art Education.  My HQ status comes from my I.M.A. in Art Education from the University of South Carolina (Interdisciplinary Masters of Arts).   I am also certified by the SC Department of Education to teach Advanced Placement classes through the College Board.  This year the Beaufort County School District trained me to be a teacher mentor.  So I also mentor teachers here at BHS that are new to the profession.  I have a life-long love of learning that I wish to share.
