I’m Sophie Michaud – Educator, Visual Practitioner, and Artist. I chose to become an educator because I am passionate about the evolving learner in each of us, and the quality of the relationships we grow on this life-long journey together. Over the past 19 years, I have served schools in a variety of roles, from teacher to school leader.
My own learning curve brought me to sharpen my visual thinking skills and become a visual practitioner in service of my work in education. I trained in graphic recording, graphic facilitation, and visual coaching until I earned my certification as a visual coach. See examples of my work here.
As far as the “artist” part of this self-description is concerned, I started making art shortly after moving to the United States from France, my country of origin. I became interested in the process of making art as a tool for self-expression. Art provided the language I needed to express myself beyond what words could convey. I make art to think, feel, observe, and communicate. Access the studio here.
Through my work, I seek to:
I create signature experiences and offer customized services to mission-driven organizations and individuals committed to doing authentic work in service of process, learning, communication, and leadership across all ages and stages of growth. I also offer access to my own artwork as an expression of my personal experience as a fellow participant on the visual and creative path.
