Anna is pursuing a Masters Degree of Education and Human Development from the University of Colorado Denver; Certified K-12 Visual Arts, and K-6 Elementary Education through the Friends School Teacher Preparation Program; Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. As a lifelong artist, she brings a passion for art in all its many, beautiful forms. Anna has taught art art in and out of the classroom. Nothing brings her greater joy than seeing students inner-artist light up, when given the right tools, instruction, and encouragement to unearth their creative gifts. In her spare time, Anna enjoys hobbies including creating (everything from fine art to handmade Halloween costumes for my daughter), spending time outdoors with my family, reading a great novel, and travel.
