TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Perhaps the great number of changes in my life exacerbated my ADHD. In any case, mindfulness certainly can be elusive. I've developed exercises to teach the whole child: body, mind, emotion and spirit. My extensive life experience combines 30 years as a yoga teacher, over thirty years parenting, and 25 plus years of classroom skills to help students focus their attention, create mindfulness, and achieve their potential.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach students. I am human, and I apologize when I need to. I treat students like they are someone's children! I teach them what things can be. I'm positive and I'm fair. They work for me because they know I care. I teach them to aspire to their potential. I teach them life lessons. I believe writing, like life, is a process. It is the most disciplined form of thinking, and students write in order to learn about themselves and their world. They keep a portfolio in the classroom. Students learn mindfulness. They learn that they can bring their minds back to the task, and I give them several tools to help!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

M.A. from Long Island University I graduated from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida, with a B.A. in English. I started a second degree at Florida State University. I earned Series 7 Representative status for 6 years and worked on Wall Street. I received my teaching certificate from Virginia Wesleyan in Norfolk, VA. I took courses at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. I received my M.S. from C.W. Post in Educational Technology. I have been teaching students since high school.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

When I realized that while reading aloud to my freshmen class I was having an entirely different conversation in my head altogether, I knew it was time to help myself and others learn to pay attention and stay on task. I started to compile tools and ideas to help others learn how to practice mindfulness and pay attention. I hope these ideas are useful and promote comprehension, awareness and well-being in you, your families, and your classroom. Namaste! I honor the light within you!
