“In my time at Namaste, I have grown tremendously as an educator.   I can’t even begin to count the ways in which Namaste has invested in my professional development by giving me the time, space, money, and encouragement to grow in areas that I needed to work on, while also allowing me to explore my own personal professional interests.” – Sara, Academic Intervention Teacher
