"My students demonstrate the vitality that is present in our community. Each day I witness young minds expressing what is relevant and significant in their lives. With the desire for self expression, these young artists desire to create is immense and given the opportunity, they explode with introspection and thoughtful meaning. In our community there is an underlying desire in our youth for self expression and tapping into this resource produces confident, purposeful citizens."
