Meet Ms. CLARIZE...

Actually, it's ClarizeYale, but we thought that might be a mouthful for the littles. ClarizeYale is entering her second year with heARTful KIDS and is holding it down amazingly in the Mission district of SF with three classes. 

She is a dedicated illustrator and her commitment to her creative practice is such a great example for this kids. We're so grateful for all of the care and kindness she brings to the classroom.


Meet MR. Justin...

Mr. Justin was such a huge hit with the kids. He taught three classes at the Mission site during his year with us. We were so lucky to have Mr. Justin's enthusiasm and consistency in the classroom... not to mention his mad drawing skills.

Since his time as a Creative Counselor, Mr. Justin has moved on to begin his own business and start a family.
