"It is only recently that we have democratized creativity to include respect for 'ordinary creativity,' the creative efforts of individuals who are not famous but devise clever solutions to everyday problems, who are highly imaginative and have many ideas, and who are more open to experience and therefore more willing to take risks."
-- R. E. Ripple (Ordinary Creativity, 1989)

My expertise in curriculum design and arts integration
can improve your teachers' effectiveness
and student achievement.
I teach educators how to improve instruction in their content area by integrating it with a creative arts curriculum.
Arts integration increases rigor by fostering a culture for creative application and analysis, innovation, divergent and convergent thinking, collaboration, and communication.
