Jade joined the Hilltop community as Elementary Art Teacher in 2018, joyously providing a TAB-inspired (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) studio space that resonates beautifully with Montessori philosophy. In their art studio, students behave as true artists: choosing their project and media, practicing techniques, and exploring their unique artistic voice. Students create in a supported, gently guided environment as they absorb technique, learn about artists in the world, reflect, and delight in the creative process!
Jade received her BFA in art and creative writing from New College via The Union Institute. She has taught art to children of all ages. She enjoys exploring new methods of art-making and specializes in comics, sculpture, graphic design, and fiber arts. She and her family love going on adventures in the woods, on bikes, at the ocean, and inside books.
