Susan M. Burns

Founder & Instructor

I'm an advocate for education no matter the age of the learner and strive to connect learning with real life application to make it more meaningful. As an educator with experience teaching a wide variety of learners, I differentiate my methods to engage learners from where they are at and provide support to bridge them to the next level. I work very hard to build structure and relationships that encourage trust and risk taking so many new adventures can be experienced. And I enjoy learning right along with my class.

Jody Hutchinson

Founder & Instructor

It was always my dream to become a teacher and make a difference. I had a deep desire to inspire and motivate children to achieve their best, so for 23 years as an elementary school teacher it was my mission to build confidence and self-esteem in every one of my students. Now my educational path has led me to new clients, many with early stage dementia/mild memory loss. I promise to provide a variety of positive learning experiences that bring happiness and a sense of well being to all my new students.
