Welcome to Visual Arts at Mayo High School

From the beginning of time, the need to create and communicate visually has been as inherent in every society as the desire to acquire a system of spoken symbols. Much of what we know of past civilizations results from visual art. Art holds the power to illuminate values held most dear.To discover our common humanity, the power of visual expression is undeniable . Every aspect of our designed environment will serve to explain who we are to those of the future. Visual Arts are integral to any civilization—ours included—Visual Arts Education is inseparable from the very meaning of the term “education.”
- the above is paraphrased from the NAEA-

The visual arts provide a multitude of areas for growth and development. Participation in the daily studio work is an important experience and provides students with opportunities to communicate ideas, problem solve, enhance critical thinking skills, practice responsibility, and gain confidence.

I am very excited to be a part of the Mayo High School Fine Arts Department for a fourth year. Moreover,
I am thrilled to be working with such an amazing group of professionals and young people. MHS feels right. I am married to a 1972 Mayo alum and all of my sons are Mayo graduates.

While I was hired by Rochester School District in 2003 as an Art Teacher. I volunteered for and parented ISD 535 students since 1989. My teaching assignments have primarily been at the Middle School level with classes at Century, Mayo and John Marshall built in to fill out my traveling schedule.  I now teach Drawing & Painting I & II, Graphic Design, Art & Design, and Ceramics exclusively at Mayo High School. 

I am proud to be a part of Mayo High School and I do love working here.
