Contact Mirada's PTO Art Masterpiece Chair
My family has been part of Mirada since 2013 when our oldest daughter entered second grade. She is now a sixth grader at Pueblo Middle School. My youngest daughter is in third grade this year.
I am a Phoenix native, however, I was raised in San Diego. We moved back to Arizona in 2007 and have called Chandler home ever since. Over the years, I have enjoyed keeping busy as a regular volunteer in my girls’ schools and classrooms. In addition to being a member of the PTO, I am a Library Media Technician in the Mirada Library.
This is my third term as a Mirada PTO Board Member. I began as 4th Quarter Chair during the 2014-15 school year, and am starting my second as Art Masterpiece Chair. I find Art Masterpiece to be one of the most rewarding ways to be involved in our school. As the Art Masterpiece Chair, I work with parent volunteers and teachers to introduce students to world-renowned artists, their artwork, all while creating fun art projects. I also have the opportunity to plan the “art side” of the annual Arts & Science Night. This is a fun and interactive school event that includes the 4th grade Science Fair, hands-on science and art projects, and our Art Walk, which exhibits the projects created by students during the Art Masterpiece lessons.
I always enjoy meeting fellow Mirada parents and families, so if you see me around school or the community, please feel free to stop me and say hello.
I hope you have a wonderful school year!
