I began teaching pottery at McLennan Community College Continuing Education program over 20 years ago, and have since taught at the Waco Art Center, Baylor University for Young People, Mo Ranch, and currently at my home studio.

My teaching philosophy is to build basic building techniques on the wheel and by hand, and then to encourage students to be self-directed. In my studio I strive to make it a place of mutual respect and encouragement. At times I feel it is a "holy" place. I am so grateful for the students I have to work with.
