Hello, my name is Gina!
I am a mother of two beautiful daughters, a divorced woman who raise those daughters by herself, and now, a recently married woman raising chickens in the country! I am also a preschool teacher who has been working at Brown Fox Point Early Childhood Education Center and Providence Rhode Island for the past 15 years. I started College Unbound three years ago and I am very close to finishing my degree! I need to complete a couple of portfolios and submit them to receive credits in order to walk in the spring. This has proven to be a challenge for me. However, playing with my dogs and working in my garden has helped ground me when the going get tough on my spirit.
My creation myth is that I could never Dance! It’s true, I did not have rhythm when I was younger. My family would laugh at my expense. However, I have grown to appreciate the talents of the artists, the rhythm and energy of music! For me, it has nothing to do with being able to hold the steps in place like you should but to feel the music in your soul and to feel the music in your heart and allow your body to freely move with the sounds. Music is my favorite favorite favorite thing in the world. Music has healing powers! Today, I have been honored by many people who have complemented my dancing. They come up to me in clubs and during concerts and want to touch my body as I move. It’s amazing! Who would have thought that dancing would be my best feature.
I am currently interested in the issues in Ferguson Missouri, politics, and Children’s literature!
