Thanks for all! You were such an amazing teacher to my daughter. I am glad the two of you clicked, and the artwork she was able to produce because of your guidance is the best effort she has ever attempted. Thank you for putting in so much time to make her presentation so special and meaningful.

“The work and work ethic of Yona Verwer was always excellent. I originally brought her on as one of S.A.R. High School’s Artists-In-Residence. 

The students found her very knowledgeable, approachable and members of the S.A.R. community, from the Administration, to the parent body, to the students and teachers are constantly commenting on the high quality and beauty of her work. I highly recommend Yona Verwer and her artwork.”
