Meet Miriam

      Miriam Cutelis is a National Board-Certified educator of 23 years with a varied experience in arts-based settings. She holds two master’s in special education. She specializes in leading a choice-based art room in which the students decide on the manner in which they use their materials to express their own personal interests. In the past few years, she has also begun volunteering with adults and helping them find their own creativity. Miriam believes we are all artists, and while some of us do not practice, we could all use a little art in our lives. Currently, she works in a Spanish immersion elementary in the Northern Virginia area as an art teacher to support young students in working together to solve interesting problems AND which are personally meaningful to them. 

     Miriam is also a long-distance runner/hiker. She began seriously running at age 40 once she realized she got winded running around a block. She has since completed 18 marathon distances in 13 different states and has also completed several ultra-marathons up to 100K distance. Her favorite challenge being the 12-hour endurance races. Her current BIG dream goal is completing a marathon distance in every state. Miriam has utilized endurance sports and trail hiking as a launchpad for self-healing, self-realization and a forum for personal growth. More recently she has been training to be a Cognomovement practitioner and is enjoying helping adults through this healing modality.
