Welcome to my website where I hope you’ll find inspiration, connectedness, and ideas. As a teacher, writer, and artist, I understand the dynamic process. Just as I begin writing a poem without its ending in mind, I’m prepared to begin a lesson without knowing where it will end.
By allowing my students’ thoughts and curiosity to direct the conversation and by helping them feel encouraged and at ease, they discover personal meaning and direction in their education.
An eclectic learner myself, while writing haiku, teaching writing circles, working in my art studio, engaging in social activism, practicing and teaching karate, and exploring the natural sciences, I continually find exciting ways to express the inspiration each day brings.
Please leave me a message. I would love to hear from you.
