Creativity Pays Off

"I want you to know that it is the creativity I learned in the Arts for Children major that got me a wonderful job with The Center for Youth in Rochester which reaches thousands of young people in many local schools a year. I am so passionate and excited about using my own teaching and creative style."Dennis Yacobucci ’05
