Position while at MPA:
Art Teacher

How many years did you work at MPA?

What do you miss the most about MPA?
I miss my students, who were always excited to be in class and enjoyed spending time together creating with various materials. I also miss my colleagues who are the hardest working and most collaborative people I know.

What have you been up to since leaving MPA?
My retirement has not taken an expected or “normal” path thus far. With any hopes of travel severely restricted, I have spent most of my time care-giving my mother, since the pandemic started. Being “her bubble”, I helped mom connect with family members through Facetime and Zoom visits. I basically lived a life of virtual meetings, Zoom workouts, and coffees. I even attended a four day virtual National Art Educators Conference. When I could carve out some extra time I would work in my garden planting chard, basil and other greens. I also spent time finally setting up a home studio space. I am looking forward to changing times and hopeful retirement opportunities.
