WE ARE BUILDING A COMMUNITY OF STORIES. Stories of struggle and stories of resilience. Stories of activism. Stories of change. A community where you are never alone. A place to share your journey. You will find others’ stories, as well as role models, non-profits, resources and inspiration to guide you on your own Hero’s Quest. From Edgy to Empowered. From Anxy to Awake. A place to find Presence, Passion and Purpose.
MY PROFESSIONAL STORY:
I taught English and social studies at The Fenn School from 1986 to 2003. As head of the social studies department, I created an interdisciplinary curriculum for middle school English and social studies and founded the annual Cultural Heritage Fair. As an early adopter of technology in the classroom, I wrote Fenn’s first Technology Plan and co-lead faculty in a 3-year technology integration course.
In 2003 I left teaching to pursue her Masters in Children’s Literature when I wrote Amanda’s Flight, studied narrative theory with a focus on multi-genre literature and intertextuality which I bring into my writing, storytelling and narrative therapy today.
I now teach yoga with a focus on mindfulness and presence that enhances physical, mental and emotional well being. Traveling to Burma to teach yoga to 300 teenage Buddhist nuns and then to a Safe House in Thailand inspired me to return to the United States and combine my three passions: Yoga. Write. Serve.
