Meet Elizabeth: Little Ripples Expert Teach Advisor!

We’re excited to announce another wonderful addition to our Little Ripples group of Expert Teachers Advisers, Elizabeth LeBlanc. To date, she has been working closely with i-ACT in further developing and finalizing the Little Ripples Teacher Training Manuals. Her enthusiasm and expertise has been invaluable! Here’s a brief introduction by Elizabeth:  

I am thrilled to be working with the i-ACT team as an Expert Teacher Adviser. I graduated from Wake Forest University in 1998 with a BA in English Literature; I am currently pursuing a Masters of Education at NMSU with a focus on Educational Learning Technologies. My love of travel and concern for vulnerable populations began during a college backpacking trip in Guilin, China. I teach Language Arts to students in grades 5-12 at Taos Academy Charter School where I also serve as Curriculum & Data Coordinator.I live, work, play and am a mother in the beautiful rivers and mountains of Taos, New Mexico. I act because working with i-ACT brings together my passion for innovative design, early childhood literacy, global education and Emotional Intelligence/Six Seconds training.

Thank you, Elizabeth! Stay tuned, Elizabeth will be blogging all summer long about her passions and involvement with Little Ripples. 

Little Ripples is creating spaces where children can thrive, physically and emotionally. Support our mindfulness work.

Become a Sustainer of Action monthly donor.
