About Sasha Roberts-Levi

My philosophy on teaching traditional art is to first focus on building a deep love of the subject, while gently introducing the technical and academic aspects. Because when you’re passionate about creating, diving deeper is even more enjoyable. I’m passionate about sharing mindful art practices to enhance self-awareness, self-compassion, and self-expression. Probably the most obvious benefit of expressive arts is the spark created in the imagination. This awakening process allows us to experience something new. It’s like an a-ha moment, a new discovery. It can lead to new things, bring light to something stuck, open a new doorway to unarticulated feelings, and shed light on the past. It can provide a new language and foster existing language when current circumstances and words cannot describe the unfolding process.

My philosophy of teaching language arts (reading, writing, listening, speaking, and visioning) is to focus on an individual’s strengths and interests.

As an educator, I support students with learning and language challenges as well as “gifted” students. My background as a traditional public school teacher and a charter school administrator allows me to see the bigger picture and meet the needs of all learners while honoring their diversity and complexity of identities, perspectives, circumstances and experiences.
