Hello! This is my 15th year teaching art in Loudoun County, and I am excited to be teaching 6th grade and 8th grade 3D art at Brambleton Middle School! I grew up in Ohio, where I showed a strong interest in the arts from a young age (and not just visual art, but music, dance, and creative writing as well!) I began talking to my parents about my desire to become a teacher as an elementary student, and that feeling never fizzled.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking, running, reading, swimming, and creating with my daughter and my husband, Ryan Thiele, who also teaches art at Brambleton M.S.! Ryan and I have worked together for the past 14 years.
I hope students will find my art class motivational, exciting, and memorable. It is my sincere hope that students will leave class knowing more about art, the visual world they live in, and most importantly how they can use art as a tool to better understand and express themselves.
I moderate and regularly update a Brambleton Instagram Page to showcase the amazing work done by students in the Art rooms. Please follow us @brambleton_art or clilck this link for web access: https://www.instagram.com/brambleton_art/
