Anna has enjoyed working in the art education field as a teacher and administrator on the Seacoast of New Hampshire and Massachusetts for the last 17 years. She enjoys working with all ages, mediums, and themes in her full-time middle school position, as well as with K-8 and high school-aged artists through various community partnership programs.
Anna believes that the arts provide a unique opportunity to enhance and deepen our knowledge in myriad subjects; develop our skills in creativity, innovation, communication, and problem-solving; all while exploring ourselves, our environment and our personal passions. Confidence, curiosity, and collaboration are hallmarks of her classroom. She is passionate about youth and families having access to quality arts experiences, and works hard to ensure that the arts play an active role in education and her community.
Anna received her B.S. in Art Education and M.Ed. in Integrated Arts from Plymouth State University. She has served on the boards of the City of Portsmouth Cultural Commission and Seacoast African American Cultural Center; as Director of Visual Arts Education for a community arts school, and Chair of the Department of Visual Arts for her school district. In 2015, Anna received the bi-annual NH Governor’s Arts Award in Art Education.
