I have taught art integration in my kindergarten and 2nd grade class for 20 years. I now share art integration with art specialty teachers and classroom teachers in Alpine School District in K-6 grade and love to coach teachers on how to bring a creative mindset to their classrooms. I use picture books with most concepts and love how books create deeper meaning for children. I love how the arts flows into all subjects and how it allows kids to think deeper, create meaning and bring purpose and feeling to their life.
