What was your inspiration to teach or what keeps you in the educational field?

I aim to create a space where all students feel celebrated, seen and heard because art has endless opportunities for expression, exploration and experimentation which I feel can benefit all skills, abilities and interests. And also to have FUN! Making art and participating in creative communities have brought me great joy so I want to share that with others.
