My goal in teaching is to provide my students with the fundamentals required to understand and properly execute scripts from the Golden Age of Penmanship. I endeavor to deliver this information in a fun, playful and energetic manner, in the hopes of sparking in my students the same joy, curiosity and desire to explore that these scripts give to me.
