Learn to free the creative spirits of your students.
We are preparing students for a future we cannot see. It's more important than ever for our children and teens to be creative. Our fast-changing world demands innovation. Our complicated world demands critical literacy skills.
“Creativity helps student resiliency, wellness, literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving."
My goal is to help educators and parents find creative abundance and prosperity they can share with children and teens. I've created a series of free monthly workshops.
I've worked as an educator for over 20 years in the following roles: High School English, Dramatic Arts, and Music teacher, Literacy Coach, Student Success Teacher, High School Vice Principal, Elementary School Principal. I've worked extensively with students in Kindergarten to Grade 12.
