Arts and Crafts Programming

collaborate with others

With great attention and care, I specialize and develop my courses to take angles on existing trends and subjects that the designated age group maintains an interest in. Using these topics, I design the course so as to target specific objectives/criteria in developing a palette of intertwined and connected skills.


In addition to teaching students to pick up new skills and techniques, my classes encourage students to:


Learning needs to be fun, and students should have a safe, open and friendly environment kept by a patient, positive teacher with the ability to adapt her teaching skills to be the best fit for that student's needs. As a teacher, I listen, support, and guide with balance, respect and enthusiasm.  I value exercising the utmost professionalism, as well as collaborating with others to provide a quality learning experience for our students. My encouragement, positivity and dedication to my students to explore their creativity is fueled by the conviction that when we empower our children with the arts, we work together to build a better future.
