May Morris is back and is teaching again with us in Newport!
************** May Morris is a Registered Music Together teacher, with years of experience working with young children and families. We're lucky to have her here: she had taught Music Together for several years with us before she moved out west for other life/work experience. Since then, she's moved back to the Newport area, and we're delighted to have her teaching with us again!
May also works as an OT (occupational therapist) with families and young children, and she brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and good-heartedness to our program!
