What has inspired you lately?I am inspired by the second graders I worked with at ME Small Elementary School. They truly embraced all that Calmer Choice is striving to teach- they engaged in each lesson and remembered all of the “big” words they learned. Their thoughts and comments are often poignant, yet innocent. They really inspire me to be a better teacher.
What’s the best advice you have ever received? Everything is temporary.
What is something that might surprise people about Calmer Choice? I think people may be surprised that Calmer Choice is doing research with Yale- conducting MRIs before and after CC lessons. This is pretty cutting edge for our grass roots organization!
What is your favorite thing about working for Calmer Choice? Everyone who works for Calmer Choice is invested in helping the kids on Cape Cod find ways to manage the stress in their lives and learn to be in the world with a quality that no one else is talking about. The people are so invested.
What is your favorite movie? This is really hard- probably Superstar.
