I'm now taking my experience to School Districts and Teachers everywhere because I know, firsthand, how STUDENTS Learn! Hands-On Projects = Authentic Learning!

Teachers need to know that our kids learn visually and through hands-on experimentation and manipulation so the ARTS matter now more than ever!

I want to bring my innovative teaching and leadership styles and experiences to teachers, students, districts, art education associations and universities across the nation because I know first hand that:

Hands-on Learning = Authentic Retention!
