Meet HomeLearnersNetwork Guide, Amber Santos! Muralist, musician, dancer, hockey mama and amateur surfer, Amber is a person of many talents. She identified as an artist at an early age, and explores art in all its forms with a focus on visual arts. Having spent over 20 years as a professional artist and over 12 years teaching art with SelfDesign Learning Community (SDLC), she’s grateful she can create safe spaces for kids to express themselves and connect with others as a Guide for HomeLearners Network.
All of our BC certified educators advise, guide, mentor and support learners and families through the learning process, but their titles vary. Here is a quick guide to the different kinds of educators our learners and families may work with at SelfDesign.
