Ms. Amy Shapiro
I am a lucky individual to be working in an area that I truly love: Ceramic Art and Sculpture. I have been working in clay since I was 5 years old, but didn't officially fall in love with the medium until my sophomore year in college. I also worked professionally as a Ceramic Artist in Phoenix, Arizona. I decided to continue into education as a way to share my love of teaching and knowledge of working in clay.
This is a link of a commencement speech that I did for my honorary doctorate that outlines some of my personal philosophies about education and life. http://www.monmouthcollege.edu/multimedia/video.aspx?Channel=%2FChannels%2FCampus+Wide&WorkflowItemID=29e60dfe-c30f-4073-a99a-50d6784b62d9
