Hello, everyone. Call me by my nickname, Betty. After 16 years of elementary teaching, I consider myself passionate about child development. My commitment is to help young students feel special and see that everyone has been created with a distinctive purpose. I respect who my students are and recognize that each one of them is a uniquely talented individual who will one day be a citizen with the capability of helping others.

Encourage a child or adult today, no matter their age, by giving them one of Smartuft’s “I AM” t-shirts, which will highlight one of their characteristics, talents, gifts, or passions. And once you show that individual their special attribute, help them cultivate it further so they can use it to help others. Or thank someone for using their attributes and talents to help others by giving them a beautiful gift basket or one of Smartuft’s nature photos.
