First and foremost, I would like to acknowledge my ancestors, those who have come before me and who will come after me. Because of them, I am deeply grateful for life.
I am Lydia Rodrigues, a native Bay Area educator. For the past 15 years, I have had the privilege to teach and manage in a variety of educational settings with children from diverse backgrounds and abilities. I hold a B.A in Philosophy, with experience in the fields of Human Development, Special Education, Philosophy and Spirituality. My passion and value for knowledge and equality, led me into the public education system and non-profit organizations in predominantly low-income areas with at-risk youth and students with disabilities. My vast scope and understand of education and my journey of self awareness, has allows me to empathize and connect with children and families in need, while providing them with the support they need to thrive. I know every child is divine and has limitless potentials and talents that are waiting to be expressed. I founded Know Thyself School with the intent to liberate and empower children through education and wellness. When children know themselves they know the whole Universe. My mission is for every child to know of the gifts within themselves and to encourage them to build upon them to serve themselves and others.
