Katherine Grace Finds the Keys to Creativity 

As a Supervisor of Instruction and educator with over two decades of experience, I help children reach their highest learning potential and teach parents strategies to greater assist in the process.  From sharing techniques in time-management, discipline, scheduling to sensory-based instruction and arts-infused learning,  I specialize in the differentiation of instruction to meet every child's learning style.  My methods have transformed the lives of thousands of students not only in the schools but within their families.

I am happy to share my knowledge and practice with your school district, community, and family!

"JoAnn approaches life and her life's work--education--with a passion and positivity that is infectious.  Her dedication to arts-infused education has fostered a learning environment that is inclusive, experiential, collaborative, and which generates positive results.  JoAnn is proof that joy is not superfluous to a quality education, but integral."

JoAnn is a creative force! She inspires and continues to grow the love of art education and to deepen the true spirit of creativity.  As Albert Einstein said, 'Creativity is contagious.
