Our Headmistress: Caitalin Petruccio

We have finally selected the head of Sarswati Peace School. And here is a message from the headmistress:

Dear Sarswati community: I would like to say that I am incredibly
honored to announce that I will be accepting the position of
Headmistress! I look forward to working with everyone at the Sarswati
School and am anxious to get started.   With such an amazing group of
people I know we can accomplish great things. On a personal note, I am
finishing up my work in India and will be spending May/June completing
my coursework on social conflict in Israel/Palestine. Everyone in
India has wonderful things to say about Nepal and I am ecstatic to
arrive in July!
