Karen Hill

Teaching Statement
I believe that children learn best by doing. I strive to provide a classroom in which children feel safe to explore their environment using all of their senses. Experiencing the arts through play at early age allows children to develop socially, emotionally, and cognitively as well as instills a life-long journey of learning and exploration.
