MAPSA, Michigan's Charter School Association, is committed to supporting better education opportunities for every child. 

 Hi, I'm Brenda

I'm a K-8 art teacher at Tipton Academy in Garden City, MI. #MiCharterClassroom embodies educator autonomy, where I can let my creativity thrive and create dynamic projects for students.

Thanks for joining @ CDAC 2019
