We've decide to share our *Magic* with wonderful teachers everywhere. I have been teaching children (primarily with special needs) for 20 years, now I teach teachers. My amazing artist husband makes the feature animation films that make your little ones laugh in the theater ...he has also spent our entire marriage bringing my classroom design dreams to life. I dream it and he makes it come true. I call them design suites...I need everything to match, to come together in a happy unison of detail, function and design. I hope you love it as much as I always have....
My background is in special education with a focus on Behavior Intervention, specifically, Applied Behavior Analysis and Positive Behavior Supports. I personally do not think that punitive corrective actions are effective, you can never run out of compliments and encouraging words...you can only hurt someone's feelings so much before they just give up. To that end, most of the Items you see in our shop that have a behavioral slant will be based on positive practices.
I have a Masters of Art Degree in Teaching, as well as a Masters of Science in Education. ( Teaching is Art Education is Science ! ) My Amazing Artist of a Husband managed an Engineering Degree in addition to Art School and almost 2 decades in the entertainment industry (over achiever that he is...)
We are parents and grandparents who have in one way or another had our entire lives interwoven with children...this is a wonderful and new opportunity to meld our experience and our art together to bring teachers something new for their classrooms...something beautiful that we have not seen out there yet.
