Eileen Pardini is now a member of Fireside Learning: Conversations about Education
Tell about your involvement in education, and your ideals for collegial sharing
I worked with at risk high school youth for six years throughout several school districts in the East Bay, CA, matching them with professional mentors in a 1:1 mentoring relationship for one year. Mentors were charged with providing academic, career and emotional support.
I teach Nonviolent Communication or Compassionate Communication and I am an adjunct faculty member at JFKU teaching Holistic Teaching.
I am a lover of the Earth. I love to hike, bike, garden and walk outdoors. I also love to read, collage, journal, cook, bead, moon gaze, travel and dream.
