Highline Public Schools Presents: 
 

Paper Tigers follows a year in the life of an alternative high school in Walla Walla, WA, that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, and in the process has become a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.  It captures the pain, the danger, the beauty, and the hopes of struggling teens- and the teachers armed with new science and fresh approaches that are changing lives for the better. 

Paper Tigers

The film is ideal viewing for educators, administrators, health-care staff, parents, social workers, mentors, and social justice advocates. Paper Tigers is designed to spark dialogue and offer hope to schools and youth struggling with dropout rates, truancy, violence, abuse and drug use.

She has a rich, well-controlled tone, and her technical facility is stunning...” Her newest CD on Beauport Classical, Flute Music of the Americas Vol. II, was released last March to critical acclaim.
