I have always believed that school should be a FUN, learning environment. The two should go hand in hand. I use puppets as a teaching tool in all of my classes, and the kids love it. Puppets are an active, non-invasive way of introducing and reviewing concepts that are important in school. I have about fifty puppets, of which about twenty-five are in the classroom and have been working with them since I was ten years old. I have competed in many competitions, and worn huge full-fitted costumes for numerous occassions.
