This is my 17th year with Meet the Masters, and I have enjoyed every aspect of this job! I am involved in teaching both students and teachers, managing, selling, training our staff–I wear many hats. My own son experienced Meet the Masters in his elementary school. While watching “Millionaire” on TV one evening, as a second grader he was able to answer the art history question, while the contestant had to phone a friend!

My experience with Meet the Masters started when my daughter was in the first grade. I’ve always enjoyed art so, I signed up to be the Classroom parent helper. I started to attend the lectures with the kids to learn about the artists and styles of art. Then before I knew it our lecturer was retiring, I’ve been in love with sharing Art with the students and teachers ever since.

As a credentialed CA teacher, I was concerned with the lack of art in my children’s classes. That was the impetus for the beginning of Meet the Masters over 30 years ago. I researched, tested, and wrote the curriculum that has grown to include 35 master artists sold and taught worldwide. It has been a labor of love, that continues to this day. I am still involved in improving and adding to the curriculum, our customer service, and the training and selection of our staff.

I have been working for Meet the Masters a few years now as a manager.  I fell in love with the program when I was teacher about 20 years ago. The school I was teaching at in Cerritos had Meet the Masters. Years later when my own children became school age, I brought the program to their school. As a regional manager I have the opportunity to observe our teachers in action. When students see our teachers on their campus they are so excited! I love that we are able to spread the love of art to students.  They begin to notice famous art work everywhere.  My own children pointed out Van Gogh’s Starry Night in a Cartoon they were watching.  Knowing I play a small part in bringing art to students is extraordinary!
