This is Cindy's 32nd year at ITC.

" I really enjoy hearing and seeing the stories of children. Listening and watching (through their art) children organize their thinking and then sharing their memories, stories, questions or wonderings, never gets 'old' for me. Children are always thinking;we just need to listen and watch!"
