Ms. Shama knows what parents need in order to feel comfortable leaving their children in her care. That's not the curriculum, but the confidence that comes from ten (10) years of experience.
She focuses her class by teaching art and writing, but sometimes she just sits and talks with her students if that's what they need.
If you ever watched Ms. Shama's class, you would hear a lot of names; she rarely addresses the class as a group and instead gives everyone individual attention.
In her spare time, Ms. Shama enjoys gardening and reading.
