"One of my teaching philosophies is to guide my students to seek out their passions through encouragement, bravery, and to believe in themselves. Establishing a voice within your artistic practice be it through social and/or cultural constructs; equity, diversity, and inclusion; social and emotional learning; and environmental preservation and conservation are all guiding philosophies that I share. No matter where those influences may come from, they make up the building blocks of each student and community member to become a well-rounded role model for their school and community.”
