Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"Polymer Clay as a medium is SO flexible, there are certainly techniques and tips that you can share that are unique to YOU and that might be helpful to someone else. If anyone has ever 'ooohed' and 'ahhhed' over your work, you should consider sharing it with your fellow PC addicts."
