Teaching has been a part of my life since I was 17 years old.
I started teaching piano lessons to children when I was straight out of high school. It was such a fun and rewarding time.
When I had my son at 22 I remember some of the parents would ask me to bring him to the lessons so they could hold him and play with him.
Shortly after my daughter arrived I set piano lessons aside and picked up a camera. I quickly developed a passion to learn more and be a photographer.
It took me YEARS to say aloud that I was a photographer. Piano teacher was all I knew. Who was I to call myself a photographer yet alone an artist?!
Now, my teaching continues. I made my dream come true and I teach at The Define School.
But here’s the thing....those children that I taught piano lessons to? They taught me just as much.
The women who have taken my Expressive Self Portraiture class? They have taught me just as much.
Not only that, but they have touched my heart and left an impact on me that’s almost indescribable.
Teaching lights me up. What lights you up?
