Welcome! If your child has been scheduled for Art or Leadership\PLUS, I am your child’s teacher. I have been an artist/educator at Fremont Elementary for over 12 years. I have a BA in Art from San Jose State University, a single subject credential in Visual Arts from Holy Names University, a Masters of Education in Urban Education with a focus on mural education/curriculum from HNU, and a Certified Integrated Learning Specialist from the Alameda County Office of Education.
In Art Class, students will learn about many aspects of visual art; from art history to esthetics, criticism, and art production. Students will be drawing, painting, printmaking, digital art, 3D art, and more. Students will be using different mediums (materials) and learning design principles while completing individual projects. Many of these projects will allow them to explore their own likes and interests within an artwork. It is my hope that the students will develop an appreciation for visual art and its importance in our daily lives. In Leadership\PLUS students will learn how to be positive leaders on our campus. Students create and plan activities that build community on campus. This includes spirit weeks, holiday grams, student forums and campus activities. Students help with school snack bar, ambassadors and PTSA.
