“Fairy tales do not tell children that dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children that dragons can be killed.” — G.K. Chesterton
“The more I teach the more I discover that building Emotional Intelligence/Emotional Quotient (EQ) through Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is the most powerful thing I can do. This work must start with me, for I cannot give something I do not have. When I awaken myself, then and only then can I attempt to awaken the minds of those I teach.”
I have been married for almost 5 years to my husband Steafan. We met at Trader Joe’s, He was working / I was shopping (that’s a story!) I’m a new mom to my one-and-a-half-year-old baby girl, Maeve Liana Byrne (that’s been wild). I’m an artist and my primary medium is movement. I’m the co-creative director for a movement festival called Blaktinx, I’m a PAIR and staff member for another art org called nueBOX. I’m happy to be the Director of Kaleo Kids and help create a vision for children at the intersection of justice and Jesus.
