Housemistress and Teacher | Rugby School

For the past eleven years I have been working and teaching Fine Art Photography in the UK. Originally from Dallas, Texas, I came to the UK to start a new life in education and art and design. In the States, I have previously taught History, Journalism, and Photojournalism as well as working in the publishing industry for Harper Collins and Macmillan. Teaching and running a boarding house of fifty- one girls in one of the finest academic institutions in England has provided me the insight needed to deliver outstanding pastoral care as well as inspirational teaching. I believe a young person’s successful academic and creative arts achievements require a solid foundation of nurtured support and care. My personal educational philosophy is to never stop learning and it is my intention to empower young people to use the visual and creative arts as a tool for lifelong learning and personal expression.
