I am a certified school social worker, working at an elementary school located in the suburbs of metro Detroit. I did my Mindfulness training through Mindful Schools in 2016. I am also a certified kids yoga teacher. I currently teach Mindfulness practices to 12 classrooms weekly. My school, principal, and district administration has been supportive of my efforts and I have been asked to facilitate several PD workshops this year for district teachers and ancillary staff on using Mindfulness in the classroom. I would love to transition into a "mindfulness coordinator" position for my district one day soon.
When I'm not working, you'll find me on my yoga mat at Center for Yoga in Birmingham, MI, practicing with Jonny Kest. My favorite quote in life is by the poet Rumi, "What you seek, is seeking you".
