A Letter from the Performing Arts Education Director
Hello Friends and Family,
I am so excited to join the Arts Bonita team as Performing Arts Education Director. It’s an exciting time of growth for this organization, and I could not be more thrilled to assist in the vision for the future. I come to Arts Bonita from The Naples Players, where I served as Associate Artistic Director for ten years and was heavily involved in the arts education program. I firmly believe that arts education is a necessity for all students because it connects us and helps us explore new ideas in a playful way. It allows us to make mistakes, learn from them, and do better each time. Our goal for the Arts Bonita youth education program is to empower students to be collaborative participants in the education process while building and sharing their points of view. We aim to challenge and encourage each student in a fun and supportive learning environment—building their confidence and communication skills. We are invested in the success of our students, their families, and the entire community. Our vision is to help build great artists, creative thinkers, and great humans.
I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better. I also look forward to learning more about the community through partnerships and outreach programs as we provide unparalleled access to the arts. Please do not hesitate to reach out and say hello—my motto is that when you are part of Arts Bonita, you are part of the family.
