Annie believes that “Our goal as educators is that no matter what subject you teach, each student has unique needs, interests and learning styles to become life-long learners. We want to make an astounding difference in all our students’ lives.” Annie tries to inspire kids to try their best in art class. She tries to make art fun and at the same time educational.

 

When Annie is not in the classroom, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She loves shopping, organizing, working out, hiking, walking her dog, and trying new restaurants. She is a true chocoholic and enjoys dessert any day of the week!
