She is committed to connecting to the school and the community through art and public arts projects. An advocate of social and environmental justice, Mrs. Grow's curriculum is based on creative problem solving and using art to resolve real world issues. A practicing artist herself, Mrs. Grow has participated in several group shows nationally and internationally. When she is not in the classroom or making art, she likes to hike, garden, cook, and travel.
