From the time my amazing first grade teacher, Ms. Streeter, asked me to help a new friend with math and reading, I've loved teaching.

Over the last 30 years or so, I've designed and taught curriculum and training for all ages. Among my eclectic mix of education and experiences: 1:1 tutor/coach, NPS Ranger, and Music Together Teacher.

Throughout, I've built on the concepts of exploration, hands-on experimentation, facilitated learning, and developmentally appropriate strategies (e.g., children learn through play).
 .

Learning is naturally fun
(and we should keep it that way)

my philosophy

I believe that

We all have the capacity to learn and create.

We all bring unique and important perspectives to the classroom community and the world.




 🗸 experiments vs. absolutes--there is         no wrong way to create art!

🗸 big concepts and small practices

🗸 tools to help you reach your personal      goals and potential

🗸 supportive critiques and community

But Diana was lovely and always had kind, helpful and constructive critiques to give to the photos I submitted for the assignments (which were so fun!). Whether you have an iphone or a thousand dollar camera, she’ll definitely help you move forward in your photography journey.

Before taking it, I felt kind of intimidated by photography, and honestly my own expectations.
