"My gift is to learn about each child’s individual needs and help them discover their own potential. I encourage freedom of expression while supporting them to push further than before."
Children build on past art experiences to learn new ways to express or more advanced techniques. I strive to help them reach or exceed their potential by honoring their strengths and pushing them beyond their challenges."
"It takes careful observation and lots of understanding to individuate my art program but after many years of teaching I realize this is how we learn, when we are ready and not before. I have an ability to recognize when to gently prompt a child and when they are finished."
