” I can’t thank you enough for giving me and my entire family this amazing experience. We have all learned so much and I know the conversations and lessons learned will just continue to grow and flourish.”
“In the short time I have known Kami, I have come to think of her as a collaborator in the Tinkering School program. Her creative input, insightful observation, and passion for working with children will ensure the success of Austin Tinkering School. I look forward to working with her for years to come.”
–Gever Tulley, founder of Tinkering School and author of Fifty Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do).
“She introduces activities that are age-appropriate and creative. Her approach is to encourage the freedom to move throughout activities that are well-planned and completely fascinating from a child or adult perspective. The interaction of small groups of kids introduces important lessons of peer group interaction, working independently, or being a thoughtful observer. The only way I can get my son to leave is if I promise that we will return soon. I can not recommend her classes enough to people. ”
–Michelle Matallino, owner/director of Olive Tree Learning Center
” Kami is a unique combination of creative, thoughtful, insightful, curious, respectful, courageous, and pioneering. She creates an environment where children are encouraged to fool around with things, to tinker and to follow their curiosity wherever it may lead. Discoveries of all sizes are noticed and celebrated. Her class is exciting, inspiring, and downright fabulous. With her encouragement, tinkering for my son is fast becoming a way of life. It is a true fit for him. I can not recommend Kami and her classes enough to people.” – Christie Shore, homeschooling mother of three
“I tell every Mom I meet about Kami’s classes. My toddler took Art 1 and asks to paint every day now. Her teaching style is calm, creative, thorough and full of Mama love. In short, she rocks with real rocks.”
—Catherine, mother of two
