Welcome to my web page! I teach Art at McGraw Jr./Sr. High School to students ranging from grades 6 through 12. 

I grew up in the small hamlet of McLean, NY and graduated from Dryden High School in 1994.  From there, I recieved my A.A. in Liberal Arts from Tompkins Cortland Community College in 1996. In 1999 I earned my B.S. in Art Education from SUNY New Paltz, and finally my M.S.T in Health Education from SUNY Cortland in 2006. I am certified to teach both Art and Health education.  I taught Art at Sherburne-Earlville for six years before I came to McGraw in 2006. I currently live in Cortland with my husband and four children.
Art Club
The Art Club meets quarterly the first Friday in the months of Oct., Dec., March, and May from 2:50 to 4:00 pm
The purpose of this club is to advance artistic growth among students who are interested in the arts as well as contribute to the cultural enrichment of the community.  We focus on exploring and experimenting with new and different types of art projects, activities, skills, and techniques.  Students will also be expected to help with community events such as face painting and crafting events. There will also be an annual fundraiser held in February.  Our field trip is scheduled in February, we will be visiting and viewing the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards Art Show at Onondaga Community College.
