Facilitating creative art's education has been a passion of mine for over 20+ years. Witnessing thousands of amazing students grow and thrive through education has been a blessing. I've enjoyed teaching English, theatre, and other creative arts in traditional settings, through an Expeditionary Learning school, and in art studios and other venues around the world. It is my belief that all students have unique learning styles and gifts to share. As educators, it is our joy to unlock those gifts so kids can excel.
Different learners often require varied learning styles and theories. Some of my favorite include: Student Centered, Cooperative Learning, Inquiry Based Learning, Creative Art's Curriculum Development, Expeditionary Learning Model, and Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory.
