Nonnie is a quiltmaker, and a certified Art & English teacher. She shares stories with students as inspiration for their art. Their resulting tapestries and quilts reflect school themes, such as Literacy, Community, and Multicultualism. Students have an opportunity to develop their artistic potential individually and cooperatively. Margaret Mead said, "An ideal community is one in which there is a place for every human gift"- these quilts and tapestries are a representation of that goal.
