Herrera Mission Mural
Our school's Mission statement is "Academic, Linguistic and Artistic Excellence!" We chose to illustrate this mission in the entrance of the school!! Junior High students worked on the mural and we are so proud of the outcome!
I am currently in my 7th year of teaching!! I teach art to 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Southeast Middle School. I have taught for 5 years in the Phoenix Elementary School District. I absolutely love teaching art and cannot imagine doing anything else! I enjoy painting in my free time and my artwork has been on display in restaurants and galleries in the Phoenix and Cleveland areas.
I attended Kent State University in Ohio. I majored in Art Education and received two minors in fine art and education. I graduated from High School in Ohio also, and was selected to participate in a professionally oriented Art Program. It was this program and the wonderful teachers that taught it that inspired me to become an Art Teacher.
