I also took private classes; making a Dream Keeper and Native Talking Stick. Beth provided the materials. I plan on taking more classes that Beth teaches.
Beth has the gift of teaching. Patient and skilled in commanding the classroom, she has a way of getting on the level of the child. Children love her because she gets on their level.
Beth has been a help in our homeschool groups bringing wonderful art lessons that she has managed to tie into other educational topics ( an example of this was an art project that the kids made really need insects and she tied several lessons in about the insects). Kids learn a lot and they had lots of fun. She is a great teacher.
Beth is an expert in Native American culture. She was a great asset to my Sonography class during a project about Native American medicine. Beth provided a wealth of knowledge regarding the customs, traditions and practices of the Native American people and their healing practices. She provided props as well as stories to enhance the information she was imparting.
