Creating art is an intimate journey, one that evolves and grows when shared with others. And so, it gives me immense pleasure to share that in addition to crafting my latest piece, I have also had the distinct privilege of teaching at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School.

Teaching at LaGuardia was nothing short of an amazing full-circle moment for me. Walking the familiar hallways, entering the classrooms, and witnessing the eager faces of budding artists – the experience was deeply rewarding, brimming with both nostalgia and hope.

A heartfelt thank you to the remarkable seniors of LaGuardia High School for your unyielding passion and dedication. You have not only been my students but also my inspiration, reminding me why I embarked on this creative journey in the first place.

I extend my deepest gratitude to Ms. Mathesius and Greg for this extraordinary opportunity. Your faith in me, a proud alum, made this enriching experience possible. Your unwavering support has created an environment where artistic talent is nurtured, and dreams are given wings.

This teaching experience served as a reminder that art is not solely about individual expression, but also about sharing knowledge, fostering growth, and inspiring the next generation. As we nurture young talents, we are ensuring the future of the arts, one that is vibrant, diverse, and resilient.

I am forever grateful to LaGuardia High School, its faculty, and its students for embracing me with open arms and allowing me the honor of contributing to its rich artistic legacy.
