Here Bonnie is pictured with her teacher Esther, and Shelley Gimbel from Tom Lee Music during a pedagogy workshop presented on October 24, 2018. Bonnie says "Pedagogy has made such a huge difference in my teaching in the way I notice problems, understand the core behind them, and find various ways to tackle them. Through taking the course I've become a much more confident teacher...thank you for being a wonderful mentor and teacher".
