What makes your classes unique?

I am always looking for what students have done well.  Always!  Though I will work to help you flourish and grow, I also recognize the strengths which you already possess to help you meet your goals. I’d also add that I make it MY goal to empower each and every student I work with, recognizing that learning is not a “one size fits all” experience. It is my job/role to understand your learning needs and to meet you exactly where you are. 

What three words would former students use to describe your classes?

Flexible, supportive and responsive.

Briefly describe the real-world experience you bring to your CCV classes.

I am a Vermont Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) who has significant experience as a mental health professional, having worked with individuals, couples/families and groups in community mental health settings as well as private practice. In addition, I have experience as a home health/hospice social worker. 

What do you enjoy most about teaching at CCV?

I began my own educational journey at CCV as a non-traditional student and gained confidence as an adult learner. CCV, and the wonderful instructors I had, believed in me when I most needed supportive guidance, and for that I am truly grateful. I am honored to pay that forward, witnessing the next generation of CCV students grow and flourish.     

What is something students don’t know about you?

I teach ZUMBA, I’m a golfer (I’m not great but I keep trying!), and I am a major dog (and cat) lover!

Stephanie Bush

Stephanie Bush

Stephanie is an art instructor who teaches drawing I, painting I and II, sculpture, introduction to studio arts, and landscape in art at CCV-Middlebury.

What makes your classes unique?

My classes lean heavily on technique. Most of the classes I teach are introductory and rather than focusing on conceptual work, I teach various tools and techniques that will empower you on your own artistic journey. Making art is a labor of love, but it’s also a lot of very hard work

What three words would former students use to describe your classes?

Difficult, demanding, and rewarding.

Briefly describe the real-world experience you bring to your CCV classes.

When I’m not teaching, I’m working in my studio. I’m represented by several galleries across the country.

What is something students don’t know about you?

I have backpacked through 23 countries (mostly solo)!
