Janice Yoga CroppedMost of you probably know her as the teacher who helped you with that tricky math homework.  Or that elusive English essay.  Because she’s been our Teacher in the Library for years!  But she wears other hats.  She’s a yoga instructor.  She works with seniors.  She used to be a classroom teacher.  And Wednesday is your chance to find out more about Mrs. Livingston!  She’ll tell us what inspired her to teach and what it takes to become a teacher. She’ll read us a story, and she’ll end the program with some YOGA!  And refreshments, too!!
