Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"I became a tole painting teacher after only 6 months of lessons. My teacher retired and recommended me as her replacement. I was petrified, but I took the challenge. I found this led me to doing more research, trying more techniques, and always staying one step ahead of my students. It made me grow much faster as an artist, and I find the same is happening with my polymer clay career. Teaching is so wonderful, because it helps me to keep learning!! "
