Lynn Larned is a school nurse and teacher in an elementary school in Rhode Island. Her goal when she entered the low residency MA in Individualized Studies program was to become a proficient dreamworker. Her thesis, named from a phrase given by a venerable spider in a dream, was about using dreams as a guide for psycho-spiritual growth and recovery. Since graduating, she continues to practice as a school nurse and teacher but her teaching strategies have changed. She has developed assessments that allow her students to use their strengths and interests in individual ways, where students are allowed to be as creative as possible in demonstrating their knowledge. She also facilitates dream groups.
