J. Quick

Biography

Just a little bit about me... I was very fortunate and married my best friend almost twenty years ago. We have two amazing teenage sons and live deep in the woods among the mountain lions and bears. Our fearless English Mastiff, a.k.a. Couch Baby, protects our home just about as well as his nickname implies, but we adore him anyway. For over twenty years I have been a secondary art teacher. In the beginning, I was a middle school teacher, and for many years, I have been a high school teacher. More years ago than I can count, I received a bachelor's degree in fine arts with a concentration in education. Just about ten years ago, I received a master's degree in education with a specialization in curriculum, instruction and assessment.
