Dear Subhadra Bowman,

I just wanted to take this time to thank you SO MUCH for introducing and teaching our students to the trainings and art of Yoga through our Physical Education curriculum. Hearing the many great stories about you beforehand was no comparison to the actual event of meeting you and watching you in action with our students.

Much of my time as a principal is spent teaching and evaluation educators by observing their impact on student learning on a daily basis, especially from first meeting throughout the progression of the year. As I saw you work with some of our 2nd and 3rd grade students in two separate sessions, I witness an observation that would have rated most HIGH EFFECTIVE for a teacher. Your immediate impact on the students was enriching and profound. I especially enjoyed when you explained to the students to “use the space that was available and necessary” because there is so much of the world around us. That was such a higher order and calming statement that allowed the students to focus on their yoga training.

Thank you once again for taking the time out of your busy schedule to impact our students and myself as an educator. It really allowed me to see the value Yoga and A GREAT INSTRUCTOR could have on their lives. If there is ever anything, myself or Myrtle Grove Elementary could provide you, please do not hesitate to ask.
