Registration for this gathering is full.

We’re sorry to miss you, but glad we don’t have to wait long! RSVP for our next gathering on Sunday 9/8!

"When Teachers Disappoint Us": Aliza Sperling will take us through a discussion of the role teachers play in our lives, the impact they have, and our expectations of those who teach us -- both formally and informally. An opportunity to reflect on the humanity of our teachers; what we value, need, and expect from them in their roles, and if it is possible to protect ourselves when they let us down. A perfect conversation for summer vacation!
Sponsorships & Dedications are most gratefully welcomed. Reach out to
