I remember my favorite time as a child was getting ready to go back to school. All those new pens, paper, glue, crayons, trapper keeps, spiral notebooks – it was the best fun for me. It was like Christmas in September. Now as a teacher, it is equally enthusiastic for me! I am excited to teach a class as it gives me the opportunity to use all the items that I desperately cherished and are old reliable friends to me.
Although you do not need any materials for the class, I do suggest that you study with whatever supplies make you the happiest. There will be journaling and written exercises to help you grasp the material easier. For me, part of the fun of learning any new subject is materials to make the experience unique. I hope that you make this experience uniquely your own, and that you have fun doing so.
