Meet the Instructor
Erin began teaching Advanced Placement Art History in 2003 while living in Texas, briefly taught in Connecticut, and has been teaching the class in Colorado (where she grew up) since 2009. Throughout the years, she has taught through distance learning and virtually at several points, including two years with students in China, and is currently the AP Art History instructor for Dwight Global online. Since 2019, she has also spent part of each summer as a co-instructor for Sotheby’s Institute of Art Pre-College program in New York City. Erin has also worked for several years with the Denver Art Museum training docents where she has coordinated full-day, state-wide field trips for AP Art History classes; she has also sat on many focus groups for the Denver Art Museum as a high school art history teacher representative.
Erin has been reading for the AP Art History Exam since 2011 including 5 years as a reader, 2 years as a table leader, and 4 years as a question leader. During that time, she was responsible for the pre-reading, the setting of rubrics and scoring notes, writing College Board online and workshop content, and having oversight on the scoring of her questions. Erin started consulting for the College Board in 2015 and has run Advanced Placement Summer Institutes and one-day workshops both in person and virtually, across the country from Hawaii to Massachusetts.
Erin loves spreading her passion for art history to others including students in the classroom, adults at workshops, and art historians at the AP reading. Her teaching style is active, fun, and engaging; she is always trying to expand and strengthen the art history community. She is constantly developing new resources to empower her students and fellow educators with the best education and AP Exam preparation possible. Personally, Erin incorporates travel and art viewing as often as possible. Recent highlights include visiting Paris to witness Christo’s Wrapped Arc as well as various trips throughout Europe, Mexico City, and New York.
