About Us

I'm Debi West and I have been teaching children through the Visual Arts for 25 years.

I'm now taking my experience to School Districts and Teachers everywhere because I know, firsthand, how STUDENTS Learn!  Hands-On Projects = Authentic Learning!

Curriculum Vitae

Teachers need to know that our kids learn visually and through hands-on experimentation and manipulation…so the ARTS matter now more than ever!

 

I am Nationally Board Certified with 25 years of teaching experience in K-12 art education, arts integration, curriculum writing and project-based learning. I am beyond excited to share my knowledge because when we work together, the ultimate winners are our children - our most priceless asset! 

 

I want to bring my innovative teaching and leadership styles and experiences to teachers, students, districts, art education associations and universities across the nation because I know first hand that:

Hands-on Learning = Authentic Retention!
