I have taught K-8 Spanish at Bannockburn School in Bannockburn, IL ever since 2002. I received my mindfulness instructor training through Teacher Advancement Courses, Gina Biegel’s MBSR-T program, the Mindful Schools curriculum and am an experienced certified yoga instructor. My passion is teaching language and promoting stress-reduction, self-compassion, and self-awareness through yoga and using mindful techniques with
educators, students, and parents. I've lead workshops, mindful groups, spoken at conferences, and presented a variety of mindfulness strategies in schools. I have a BA in Spanish, BS in Education, MA in Spanish language and am also a certified ELL/Bilingual Educator.
