Teacher Artist Statement
I firmly believe in teaching children where they are, both academically and emotionally, and allowing them the freedom to learn and explore at their own pace. When not forced upon us, but introduced in a fun, playful manner, learning is more meaningful, and concepts stay with us forever. Even as an adult I love learning through play.
