I am an elementary art teacher in Hunterdon County, NJ. with 17 years experience as of this writing. Translation: I create tomorrow's super heroes. I have a BFA in Fine and Commercial Art, an MA in Teaching. This year I became a certified Academic Life Coach, which is my niche here in WA World.
After confronting Gov. Christie at a town hall meeting in 2010 about his derisive rhetoric about public education, he put the video on his You Tube channel where it went viral. Since then, I have run for NJ State Assembly three times (lost in 3 very close races), been featured in a New York Times front-page article about public employees, and have been a guest on The Ed Schultz Show, Politics Nation, Fox and Friends, as well as interviewed for a variety of local, national and international news outlets.
In the past 15 years, education has become so stressful for both educators and students, that many young people just feel overwhelmed. As an Academic Life Coach, my goal is to empower my clients to cut through the noise to find their own heart, their own voice, their own true self. By knowing more about themselves, they can live more--happily and with purpose.
