I spent most of my childhood outdoors in San Jose, California. If I wasn’t in sports I was running around with the neighborhood kids on my block. Today I am blessed to still be running around outside with the neighborhood kids, but now I get paid to do it! I am currently teaching 6th grade Social Justice classes along with Meditation and Gardening classes for grades 5-8 as well as facilitating after school programs. If I’m not in the classroom or in the garden, you can find me writing and recording music or out hiking and camping in the Sierras.
