Andrea has been a speaker for TAMI for a year, and has taken the last year off for a maternity leave.  She wants students to know that there is help, that it can get better, and that at different times you may need to seek more support than others and that is fine.  Andrea loves being special education teacher, being a mom, reading and painting.  Two strategies from her mental health toolkit are trying to get outside for a walk everyday, and asking for help when she needs it.
