10:15am – 12pm

I am currently an Art Teacher at Kellar Middle School in Robbins, IL. The classroom became a part of my creative career in 2002 when I began teaching Graphic Design at Westwood College. Since then, my professional career has maintained a lucrative balance of being a designer and educator respectively. My design career began at Montgomery Ward Headquarters as a page builder in 1999. Each job since has led to new experiences and opportunities. My last two creative positions have been management roles for Harrah’s Joliet and Girl Scouts. On the other hand, being an instructor over the years has contributed to me becoming a better leader, presenter, and trainer. To stay current with today’s software and technology trends, freelancing has been a priority of mine throughout my career. This has also allowed me to strengthen important skills like digital photography, audio-video production, and brand management.

It is with great confidence that I believe my skills and experience will be an asset to your company. Feel free to contact me at (708) 781-3935, or by email at designbywwoods@ gmail.com with any questions or to schedule an interview.
