Administrator's Testimony

"After nearly two years of remote learning social distancing and masked faces, I was looking for professional development that would be uplifting, joyful and inspiring

for our Fine Arts teachers in Amarillo ISD. I was fortunate to find just what we needed in Dr. Teri Evans-Palmer! Her professional development was both highly beneficial and entertaining! Teri presented a ‘Teacher Talk’ to art, theatre, dance, speech, and journalism teachers and each group found practical ideas to bring humor and joy into teaching."

-Denise Olson

Amarillo ISD Director of Arts
