A Lafayette native, Roz has been a teaching artist with PACE and Teaching Artist Program for 14 years. She has a bachelors in Elementary Education from University of Louisiana at Lafayette and has a background in dance and visual art. Roz loves being a teaching artist because it allows her to do what she is passionate about. She believes the arts are important in the development of children in their education, and it excites her to have the opportunity to share her enthusiasm for the arts with her students. She enjoys teaching lessons that require painting because the students are not often exposed to that medium, and they truly love it. She incorporates art history into her lessons, giving the students a well-rounded art education.
