I strive to fuel my work with the beauty and wonder of life itself and with relationships of trust and kindness. Committed to the integration of music and the visual and dramatic arts in educational curriculum, it is my pleasure to model this in my Antioch classes.

Jane leads a lesson in a second grade class on “The difference between wants and needs”

“I shared slides of schools I’d visited and worked in, in Bali and India, highlighting the simple materials that children use in schools there. (Contrast what these children have with what we have.)”

“Then, I led these second graders in making a mandala out of flower petals as I’d seen children do in India. This tied in with the second graders’ study of symmetry.”

“We then took a minute of silent time as children do in both Bali and India.”
