Shannon Martinez - Studio Awe Teacher

● Studied Reggio Emilia method in Reggio Emilia, Italy

●     California credentialed teacher

I am inspired by art and nature and the sense of wonder they ignite in the imaginations of young children. My love of the "atelier" (studio) and my desire to be an "atelierista"(studio teacher) was sparked during my studies in Italy at the Loris Malaguzzi Centre and the schools of Reggio Emilia. I grew up in Nevada County, where I began my teaching career, then followed my heart to teach in schools around the world, including Italy, Malaysia, Indonesia, Austria and the Caribbean. I recently returned to California with my husband, Jeff and our two sons, Kiran and Kavi where we live happily in this beautiful and creative environment.
