Berkman Arts Integration Academy
Round Rock, Texas
I am the arts integration coordinator for Berkman Arts Integration Academy in Round Rock, Texas. It is my passion to help teachers and students harness the power of the arts into all aspects of teaching and learning. In my 17 years as an educator I have taught in both the general and arts classrooms, at elementary and the secondary level and worked as a school administrator prior to becoming an integration coordinator. I truly believe that the integration of the arts into our schools is the most powerful yet so often underutilized ways to improve student achievement, engagement, and foster true ownership of learning.
