i’m an elementary music teacher by day. When I’m not doing yoga, you’ll find me in my perennial gardens weeding and creating or taking long hikes with my dog Molly. In the last couple of years I have delved in buddhist teachings and mindfulness practices. I believe that mindfulness should be paramount in our school system and I hope to guide an teach this to students and colleagues in the near future. My passion for Human Rights Issues has always been a huge part of my life. I feel that it is important to take care of the marginalized and the “greater community”.
