Staff Development Coordinator, CiTi BOCES
Liane Benedict is in her 15th year as Staff Development Coordinator for CiTi BOCES, her 29th year as an educator. She feels blessed that in this role she is able to support others in ways that align with her passions – through mindfulness, community, connection and self-care. Currently, being able to provide one on one and group coaching to educators at various levels is most inspiring. Her training as a Mindfulness Meditation teacher is foundational to her work and personal life. When not supporting educators with strengthening their resilience and pedagogy, she is tending to her growing homestead of chickens, goats, bees and growing all the things.
