BTT’s board of directors has hired Jessmaya Morales as our new coordinator! She recently moved to Brattleboro after living and teaching abroad for several years. She holds an MA in teaching English to speakers of other languages from SIT Graduate Institute and a BA/BFA in Women’s Studies & Art from University of California at Santa Cruz. She has worked in a wide array of fields and loves learning new things that continually expand her world. From community advocacy and arts education, to working in a non-profit women’s rights law firm, house-painting, youth empowerment and leadership, and even earning a wildland firefighter certificate while serving on a U.S. Forest Service trail crew; Jessmaya’s done and seen way more than meets the eye. Striving toward social justice and equality, she’s a believer in kindness, planting seeds, listening hard, speaking up, getting out of boxes, and daily dreaming. She’s excited to join the BTT family!
