Development Director, Cottonwood Gulch Expeditions

Also serving in McKinley and Cibola County

Cottonwood Gulch has been providing summer outdoor education with a focus on SEL for 97 years. In the last 15 years, we have expanded to include school year programming with local (statewide) school partners. We have existing curriculums that are aligned with state standards, and are open to partnering with schools, child care organizations and home school groups. I am interested in collaborating with other SEL educators.

I’m very interested in working with any educators who are looking for experiential, outdoor education opportunities for their kids. Please call! I’m also interested in any certifications or seals we could apply for to have us designated as an SEL educator. Thanks!

1) strength- experience with peer mentoring in Rio Arriba County and relationship building within schools and with families
2) interest- school settings that integrate culture, supporting Grandparents and kin raising all ages of children, bringing genuine change informed by local stories.
3) expertise- transformative approaches to wellness

I am one more person to stand up for transformed educational and human service systems, and believe kids and families have the right to feel safe, seen, heard, and valued for who they are now, not who they should be later according to worn out beliefs and theories.

“I am the Founding Co-Chair of the Social and Emotional Learning Alliance for New Mexico (,) and a member of the Steering Committee for Karanga – the global alliance for SEL and Life Skills. As the Director of the Taos County SEL Community Catalyst training project and as an educational consultant in emotional intelligence and mindful social and emotional learning for more than two decades I know these skills must be developed across communities and start with the adults.
These essential life skills are teachable, learnable and become more agile and permanent with intentional practice. SEL must be grounded in local culture and context and needs to be culturally informed and affirming. This is old wine in a new bottle. The development of these skills is a part of every culture, life philosophy, spiritual tradition and robust research indicates that these skills have profound positive impact on wellbeing, physical and mental health, academic achievement, career success, relationships, and life satisfaction. Developing these skills in children and youth starts with the adults in their lives. All young people deserve to be surrounded by adults who are self aware, able to navigate their own emotions, and who are intentional in their interactions and decision making. It is a matter of equity.”
