You'll find her in schoolrooms, amidst the giggles and positive
hubbub of creativity, or strumming her ukulele surrounded by laughing
faces at festivals, concerts, museums, workshops, school and family
programs. You'll find her in the suburbs, in inner city schools
and as consultant on educational family cruises as far away as Greece,
Italy, the British Isles and Scandinavia.
