I have the sweetest daughter. Roia is my angel. She has a mild form of autism called aspergers. She loves her life, family, faith, pets and her music. Although not true, Roia will tell you she is nothing without her music. Music is her connect, her happy place that sets her soul free in these bittersweet times.
Roia is also one of the most ethical and moral people I know. In a heartbeat she would and has given a beloved treasure to a child in need.Sometimes we take away treasures more precious than things.

Brattleboro Cheese Shop & Café is now serving BREAKFAST!
Come to 39 Main Street, across from the Latchis Theatre and Hotel, and have a real, homestyle breakfast!
We now serve breakfast TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, 7am til 11am.
Delicious egg sandwiches and egg platters available to enjoy in the store or take with you. We feature Vermont’s indigenous cheese — Plymouth Artisan cheese — on our breakfast sandwiches. It’s similar to Cheddar but is smoother and melts beautifully. And it was invented by Calvin Coolidge’s father!
Brattleboro is a lovely place in the springtime, but sometimes, you just feel like going out and experiencing spring somewhere else for an afternoon. This is especially true if you have out of town guests, as many of us do during the summer. This year, we took advantage of my brother’s visit to take two very different day trips. The first was down to Northampton, where we toured the many gardens of Smith College. The second was a multi-stop drive out to southwestern Vermont where we checked out two lakes and the Southern Vermont Arts Center. Both trips were great fun with plenty of variety to keep things interesting.
The Gardens At Smith College

It is probably safe to say that the Fauré Requiem is one of the most popular and performed pieces of music in the entire choral literature. And for good reason: Fauré captured the essence of all that is beautiful and transporting in a format that is modest in size, but huge in concept.

Many of us had frustrating experiences “learning” a foreign language in school. We were taught the grammar rules before we could speak and understand the language, and after several years of study we could conjugate verbs but couldn’t hold a conversation. Escuelita’s classes use current brain and language acquisition research to create classes that allow our students to truly acquire the language faster than they imagined possible. Our classes are not only effective– they are extremely fun. Every class is different because they are completely personalized to the students in the group. Together, the class co-creates stories and wacky situations (ever notice how it is the strange/funny details that stick in your brain?)– entirely in 100% comprehensible Spanish!
