I have been a teacher for over 40 years. I am the author of "Calligraphy For Dummies" and "Calligraphy for Creative kids." Early in my teaching career I created an Italic handwriting curriculum for an academically progressive private school in northern Virginia. I taught Italic handwriting to K through fourth grade for eight years (1980 - 1987). Today, many of my former students regularly receive accolades for their beautiful handwriting.
I believe in combining the best elements of a classical education with contemporary methods. This is true in my approach to both teaching and my art. I am especially interested in Christian education, homeschooling, Waldorf education, and the unschool movement.
