    I just wanted to compliment you on your fabulous writing. I purchased 3 of your books at the Calgary Teacher’s Convention, and within a few short days of flipping through them, I have already gained valuable information that I can use in my classroom. As the only Art teacher in my school, I have found it to be so important to reach beyond the school walls and discover new collegues with similar interests. I thank you for sharing your expertise and I look forward to reading more of your work!
