I have been teaching at Towne Meadow Elementary in 2000. I have a Bachelor of Art Education degree from Herron School of Art & Design, IUPUI. My other degrees include a Masters of Fine Art (Sculpture) degree from the Ohio State University and a Bachelors of Fine Art (Visual Communications) degree from Herron School of Art & Design, IUPUI. I also has a minor in Art History.
Prior to teaching at Towne Meadow, I taught Drawing, 3-D design, and Sculpture at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa.
I enjoy researching ancient history and mythology. I love to illustrate, paint, and build things. My hobbies include being outdoors, camping, hiking, bird watching, and gardening. I'm married to Valerie Eickmeier. Valerie is an artist and has been the dean of the Herron school of Art & Design, IUPUI since 1999. We have two children, Jodi and Forrest.
