Discipline(s):  Drama/Storytelling, Visual Arts, Puppeteer

Bio:  Annette has been a Title 1, Instructional Assistance (K-1) since 1998 and a Teaching Artist at VSAI since 2002.  Through her activities as a parent of a child with a disability, she has been an active volunteer and advocate for her community.

Philosophy:  I feel very privileged to work with VSAI to educate children about disability awareness.  Helping my daughter share her story about how it feels to be in a wheelchair is very rewarding.  I am an optimistic person, I love to hear laughter and see smiling faces. I believe everyone, no matter what their abilities or disabilities is blessed with a gift and deserves the opportunity to find their gift and do what makes them happy.
