As an educator, I’m fully aware of the importance of young people encountering those who will challenge them and enable them to grow. Viola has, over the many years we’ve worked together…provided that opportunity to many of our students. Her direct, yet sympathetic, approach has allowed our students to discover the source of many of their difficulties and her expert wisdom and counselling have assisted them in their struggle to become fully aware, responsible, and productive members of society.
