7

I grew up in Onalaska, attended St. Patrick School though the eighth grade, and graduated from Onalaska High School in 2007. In high school, I was very interested in art and went to State VAC two years in a row. I was involved in volleyball and softball, and I worked as a coach for 10 U Summer Softball. Loving the area, I attended UW-lacrosse and pursued my education and fine arts degree with an emphasis in photography. I am pleased to be at Aquinas Catholic Schools, giving back to my faith and community.

MY CLASSROOM

The art room is a welcoming and creative environment. Students are expected to come to class prepared to work and try new things. Learning art skills and being creative are the most important concepts in every art class. Students should take responsibility for their learning and should put forth effort in their projects. Keeping the art room clean and safe is important and a responsibility expected of every student.
