Once adulthood rolls around, finding time for those cherished interests can become more difficult as more responsibilities pile up. But, for Upper School Chemistry teacher Beth Seibel-Hunt, engaging in those activities that bring her joy is something that holds a special place in her heart.

Seibel-Hunt plays hockey as a part of the Women’s Hockey Association of Minnesota for an intermediate level women’s team. Aside from how fun and entertaining athletics can be, Seibel-Hunt says that “everyone does it for the sole purpose of staying in shape.”

But when involved in a team, camaraderie and friendships will obviously take shape.

“The side effect is that we end up meeting after games, or we might meet and run the Turkey Trot together,” Seibel-Hunt says, “and when we’re playing hockey we get totally competitive … it’s super fun.”

For Seibel-Hunt, taking time weekly to take part in an activity that brings her joy and strengthens her social relationship is an invaluable experience.
