They are exceptional kids and have a fabulous attitude and desire to excel! When I found out that there was going to be a position in the art department for the fall, I jumped on the opportunity. I am so very excited to have been given the chance to work with these kids and show them all the wonderful opportunities that are available to them through the arts. I have been working on small fine art projects and developing lesson plans that I will use in my classes next year. I have a whole NEW level of respect and admiration for my faculty at SCAD! I knew they worked hard, but I am gaining an even higher level of appreciation for all that they did for me and my future as an educator!" I would never have thought my background in museums and Art History would have placed me in the public school systems teaching middle school fine arts. I love it! The kids are wonderful and love the creative process! This is such a pivotal time in their developmental years. I am just glad that i can share this time with them and offer some creative outlet through the creation of art!"

I work as a photographer, journalist and graphic designer for the Fossey Fund. My work takes me to very isolated areas of Africa. The field is challenging and rewarding. When I majored in photography at SCAD, my goal was to one day marry my degree in photography with my passion for primatology and wildlife conservation. With this position, I have been able to successfully do that. Next year, I plan on entering a Ph.D program in biological anthropology to round out my background and ensure my permanent place in the primatology world." (updated 05/28/12)
