Our school is incredibly lucky to have such a talented and amazing art teacher. Yvonne is a fabulous artist herself and through this in depth personal knowledge of art and all the processes that go into making an artist, she truly supports our students in becoming artists - the work that comes out of our school art studio is awe inspiring. Yvonne offers extra art classes for our talented students and gives of her own time in the holidays to run special art events. Yvonne encourages students to reflect deeply on their creation processes. Also, Yvonne is the most caring and nurturing colleague you could ask for. She displays a genuine interest in her colleagues, checking up on them and being open to 'spontaneous work place hugs'. West Beechboro is a much better place for having her here!
Yvonne is a jet! The personal experience, skill and qualifications she brings to the role are matched only by her compassion and creativity. She is the sort of teacher you would imagine Gaudi, Roberts and Cassatt would have enjoyed. I thoroughly enjoy walking through her studio and seeing my students hard at work, busy tweaking their latest masterpieces, with enormous smiles on their faces. There is nothing like it! Thank you so much everything you do.
