Tiny Tips Tuesday: Please Introduce Yourself


Dear Friend,

I feel like it is time to make a new round of introductions. I would love to get to know you and what you’d like to learn so I can better serve you.

Sound good?

I’ll start.

My name is Tami. I live in Sacramento,California with my three and a half year old daughter, Ruby and my husband, Jed. Until last spring I was on parental leave from my third grade teaching job. Now I’m home with my kiddo full time because you really can’t beat that 1-to-1 student to teacher ratio.

Since leaving the classroom, I have also started my own business.  I teach teachers (and other people who give a lot in their lives) how to better take care of themselves (through programs like The Healthy Happy Sane Teacher, private mentoring sessions and writing this blog) and I also teach restorative yoga at It’s All Yoga on Sundays. That’s a lot of teaching!

I first found yoga in my late 20’s, but didn’t start really practicing in a meaningful way {to me – ie not just as exercise} until my mid-30’s. Right before I turned 40, I did yoga teacher training, decided restorative yoga was the thing that everyone needs to do, started this blog and a really long adoption wait.

Part of the reason I found a quieter and kinder yoga practice is because I was burning myself out on teaching and waiting. I needed to find a way to help me relax enough to enjoy the career I finally loved and get ready to become a mama.

Some of my favorite blogs are Pink of Perfection, Yes and Yes, Design Mom, Non-Consumer Advocate and Shutterbean. I’d love to hear about your favorite blogs, so tell me what you love to read.

I’m always looking for post ideas, so please don’t be shy about what you like and what you don’t. Some of my most popular posts have come from suggestions from readers, so I’m all ears!

Now your turn! Please send me a message answering the following questions.

  • Where do you live?
  • Are you a yogi or teacher? Tell me about your practice and your class.
  • Not a teacher or a yogi? What kind of work do you do and what brought you to Teacher Goes Back to School?
  • Do you have a blog? If so, please tell me a little bit about it and include a link!
  • What posts on Teacher Goes Back to School do you like, and which ones bore you to tears?
  • Do you know me in person, if so how did we meet?
  • What are your biggest hopes, fears and dreams?
  • What is your number one problem?
  • How can I help you?
  • And anything else you wish to share.

With lots of love and compassion,



PS – If you find this helpful or know someone who would, please be sure to pass it on. Sharing is caring!
