About me...

I'm an experienced educator, advocate and yoga instructor, dedicated to teaching and supporting the "whole" child with compassion and kindness. Passionate about advocating for and working with children of all ages, I design individualized educational programs to meet your child's unique needs. I combine learning with activities that enhance creativity, improve concentration, increase self-esteem, relieve stress and promote peace. Working collaboratively with you, your child will climb the Learning Path to success.
