I am beginning my 4th year as a substitute in Hoboken, NJ, at a large k-6 elementary school. I teach Mixed Media Arts and Fairy Tale Theater in the after school enrichment program, Passport to Learning. I teach "Peaceful Frogs" at Little Bee Learning Studio (nature and art combined) once a week. I have made presentations to public schools on frogs and amphibians, and children's art. I have taught nonprofit organizations on branding, social media and web. I have taught online through Udemy (4 courses currently offered) and through my own webinar series for the past 3 years. In the past I taught college level classes at Pratt and post-graduate at Parson's.
