Do you have a mantra that you live by each day?
As creatives, we often gravitate towards specific sayings or guideposts. And in Mary’s case, she adopts her own.
Mary Crowlie taught in a classroom for 20 years before changing paths and becoming the art teacher for 800 children in grades 1st-5th.
This was her realization of nabbing her dream job. But it was more challenging than she expected. To keep her spirits and energy up, Mary adopted a mantra that she uses to both inspire, humor and keep her radiant outlook.
I love this episode because it shines a light on an educators who is truly making a difference, yet mostly go unheard or acknowledged. Her positive energy and years of experience really shine through in our conversation. It feels as though we were sitting across from one with a glass of Rosé!
