Angela Vanstory Ward

I like to laugh … I tell my students "If it isn't fun, then you're doing the wrong thing." However, I am intensely committed to getting the job done. Communication is the key - WORDS are our tools! Otherwise, we could play the kazoo. If you have nothing to say, you are in the wrong place.

You must have something TO SAY!!
