My Students

We are a very large school. 97% of our students receive free lunch. The community is tight knit and an "island"onto itself. Families do not venture far from this area, and if services are not available, they tend to not seek the help.

My students have little access to mental health support.

Beginning to educate them in Mindfulness will help them to identify areas which are stress and anxiety producers. Once they are able to use Mindfulness to lower their inner conflicts, they will be able to interact with others in a more positive way.

My Project

These books, activities and chimes will help create a climate of calm where uncertainty exists.

Mindfulness helps children to understand themselves and the world around them with calm and clarity.

Some of my students have experienced community, home, and school trauma. These traumas interfere with not only learning at school, but the way a child learns to interact with the world.

My students deserve to learn the skills which will help them reduce anxiety, sadness, and stress. This project will help teach them the skills they need to be able to self regulate in school, as well as at home and in the community.
