She currently is an adjunct professor at MMC where she teaches Composition and improvisation. She also teaches workshops regularly through Paper Canoe Company--dedicated to creating family friendly content of the highest caliber across platforms.
My classes are taught in a hands-on style and special emphasis is placed on responding to student driven questions. I also mix media, so frequently within the same class, students will be asked to engage in movement, visual artwork, writing, music making, and discussions. This allows for different learning styles to be supported. Also, by creating an active learning environment where we dip into different mediums children are taken out of traditional habitual learning patterns which can free up out of the box thinking.
