Sandra Gunn, a former educator in the public school system, received a grant to develop and teach an innovative humanities course for high school students. Upon the successful completion of this program, she left public education and joined the Council of the Great City Schools in Washington, DC where she helped develop curriculum options for the great city schools. This work was designed to build a bridge between the relevance of what a student learns and its practical applications to his life.
With the birth of her two sons she established a home school with pioneering concepts devoted to the exploration of their natural curiosities. The curriculum was based upon the concept that every child is an artist who has a need to express himself; that each question may have more than one answer; that success and failure are part of the same process; that mistakes are positive because they encourage us to change direction; and that work and play are the same. Children learn what has purpose in their lives.
She received her BA degree from the University of Florida and her Masters degree from Auburn University. She has a successful hospitality interior design business. Sandra was chosen by Hotel Interactive HIConnect Design to be one of their 50 featured vignette designers in their March, 2012 national hospitality trade show. She was invited to become a member of the HIConnect Design Advisory Board.
