About Carolin

Carolin lives in Vancouver BC, grateful to be able to walk regularly in the woods or along the ocean. She’s been an elementary school teacher since 2008, working as a textile painter and tutor prior to that while her children were small. When she’s not working, she plays the flute, paints, draws, reads, and gets outside!

Humour, patience and a genuine interest in the well-being of children are central to and guide my interactions with students.

Carolin brought mindfulness classes into my classroom of students who really needed this type of attention to practice awareness and slowing down. She was so accepting and genuinely caring towards the students that those who were most squirmy and reluctant eventually felt interest and took part.
