Advocacy Statement
“It’s a joy to share lessons that bring out the unique creativity of children.  A Schulwerk-based classroom fosters a sense of community as well as individual contribution to that collective.  AOSA is synonymous with that model, and I am honored to be asked to contribute to the efforts of AOSA by sharing this work with others!”
