Meet Sandy McVey,

Your teacher

Helping people learn is an intrinsic part of my nature. As a youth I was called a “natural teacher.” I remember as early as third-grade being paired with a struggling classmate. It was natural that I would gravitate to instructional design and the benefits of educational technology for a career. As much as I love what computers have done to transform our lives, another side of me needs to create tangible art. 12 years ago I found my perfect passion path through floral design. Showcasing the principles and sharing inspiration through collaborative teaching experiences bring me much joy.

What to bring

Notebook and pen. 12" of thin ribbon and a fork.
