I have worked with children in one way or another my entire adult, life, but most recently worked with emotionally disturbed ( a horrible label in my opinion for kids with behavioral issues) school aged kids in Olathe Public School’s special education department. I have a degree in psychology with a minor in art, and currently working on my master’s degree in Art Therapy. My teaching style is anything creative, crafty, or using my imagination. I have been married to my husband Jim for 10 years and have lived in Olathe for about 15 years now. We both grew up in Missouri and met while attending Southwest Missouri State University. We have two beautiful daughters, Olivia Grace (4 yrs) and River Jayne (1 yr), as well one 12 year old puppy name Dori. I am an avid reader, and love all things geeky. Seriously, from superheroes to Hogwarts, and Star Wars, puzzles or board games.
Our task, regarding creativity, is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible. No one can do more. -Loris Malaguzzi
