  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    Every student has different needs. When they walk into my classroom on day-one, it is my job to figure out what that student needs to get excited about their art. Some need a lot of direction, some need a little, and others just need the art materials and they take off from there. On the last day of the semester, their passion will be reflected in the art they make.

  • A Teachable Moment

    I was staying with a family in a village in Guatemala. These people had very little in material things, but they had the elderly grandparents living next door, their well-behaved children who walked home from school to a home made lunch. They envied us "Americanos" who had so much stuff, but I realized that they had more than me.
