    Hello Everyone, 

    This is my schedule for remote learning.  I will post a weekly schedule on Canvas for all of my online classes at the beginning of every week.  You will receive and submit assignments in Canvas.

    All areas in color are times that I will be available to students. Each period is color coded so that you know when I am available for your specific class.  Purple areas are for all classes with suggested times on Fridays for Make-up work and additional support.

    Communication is essential in making this experience effective, efficient, productive, and rewarding for all involved.  Please contact me with your questions, comments, and concerns.

    Regards, 

    Ms. Tran

Professional Biography

  • I graduated from Utah State University with a B.S. in illustration and a minor in philosophy.  I have been involved in the creative industry for over 25 years and have served as a volunteer in many communities for longer than I can remember.  With frequent moves associated with military living, I worked as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. I specialized in portraiture and designing posters and artwork for various companies and battalions within the U.S. Army.  Additionally, I have also volunteered at Army Community Services to provide art instruction to spouses of deployed soldiers.  I earned a web design certification at South Puget Sound Community College and my Master's in Teaching at The Evergreen State College. 

    I recently took a 1 year leave to operate a small art supply retail business in downtown Olympia.  My experience as a small business owner managing art supplies, promoting classes and workshops, engaging with the local community and other small businesses has given me many resources to bring back into the classroom to enrich student learning.  I am excited to continue as the 2D art teacher here at Ridge.  I am so fortunate enough to be able to continue supporting young people in developing artistic skills not only as an asset for those interested in pursuing careers in creative fields but also for every student in becoming global citizens who understand the creative process and the impact that art has on individuals, cultures, and history.

    What you can expect from me in my classroom is differentiation in my teaching to meet diverse learning needs that ensures equitable access to learning.  My teaching philosophy embraces anti-racist, LGBTQ+ affirming, multicultural, and feminist education to create a compassionate, humanizing learning community within a safe and empowering environment.

    Please contact me if you have questions, comments, or concerns.  I check my email multiple times throughout the day.  This is the best way to reach me.
