Work opportunities

I am an artist educator, who over 38 years has taught Primary, Secondary and Tertiary, and have taught in many different environments.
I bring to my resume, many different possibilities and options and am a very creative person. As can be seen below, I have many different abilities, but the main linkage is creativity, irrespective of the subject.
I am also prepared to work one on one and be involved with Art projects of any kind.
Call me if you want to talk.
