to him, art is a spiritual practice, a
way to connect and celebrate. His
motto: Art for All, All for Art.
"I am committed to provide an engaging and positive
learning experience for all students. I integrate music,
dance, poetry, and visual arts into my teaching curriculum
so students learn to make connections between the art forms.
I teach students to maximize their creative power and talents,
to learn and to follow, to question and to take risk. I teach
students discover the possibilities art presents for them on a
more personal level. I teach art because of the love of making
art and the joy of sharing it. I teach what I practice."
"Everything the Power of the
World does is done in a circle...
so it is in everything where
