TEACHING INTERESTS

My mission as an art educator is to empower students to make meaningful connections to, through, and with art and visual culture.

TOP


RESEARCH

My research interests are varied, however, they are always rooted in the art classroom and make use of semiotics as a theoretical framework for research practices.
