Classes: 10th/11th/12th Grade CTE- Construction Design Management/ Architectural Design
Background/Expertise in Content Area: Architecture was a family business. I studied Graphic Design and Illustration at MICA.
I joined the BDS Family because…of the connection to MICA being my alma mater. I was eager to work with the college again. I stayed for the people. We have a staff of founding teachers that are among the most dedicated and talented I have ever worked with and we’ve only added to that family. Design is such an exciting subject to teach because it really teaches youth to be not only problem solvers, but problem seekers. It teaches them to understand how things work and to understand why systems fail. It’s the kind of forward thinking that we need in the world and this kind of thinking gives them a leg up in college and career.
Fun fact about me: I am a woodworking enthusiast and have a wood shop in my garage, although my two kids keep me too busy to use it as much as I would like.
