The art education department has more than prepared me for the hopefully long and exciting teaching career that lies ahead of me. I have had the pleasure of working closely with four different professors in the department, and they have all opened countless doors for me. Under the guidance of Dr. Danker, I have had the special opportunity to speak at conferences, collaborate with visiting artists to create relevant K-12 lesson plans, and develop extensive research projects that I will be able to carry into my own classroom. I have developed lesson plans with Cynthia Collins as her first art education intern at Miami University Art Museum, a position I hope continues in the coming semesters. I have even been able to fly to New Orleans to attend the National Art Education Association conference.
The art education department, as a whole, has made me believe that I am pursuing the right career. I entered student teaching this semester confidently, knowing that the professors and students have done everything in their power to prepare me for whatever I would face. They have taught me the importance of thinking on my feet, connecting with my students, and that every day in a classroom is a new opportunity for learning. There is absolutely no way to thank the support system I have found in the art department enough, and the College of Creative Arts will always hold a very special place in my heart.

A Multidisciplinary Arts Education
Miami University will always hold a special place in my heart, specifically the Art Department and its instrumental impact on my career. As an art therapist and master's level mental health counselor, the benefits of a conceptual and technical arts education within a liberal arts university go far beyond my four years at Miami. Those experiences have woven themselves into every interaction I have with my patients. At Miami, I was given the opportunity to define not only my identity as an artist and an art educator, but also the freedom to explore other disciplines inside and outside of the art department. The high level of preparedness and expertise I received from the art department faculty will continue to influence me throughout the breadth of my career.
