My Students

I work in a Title One School in a rural community. The resources in our town are very limited and many of our students do not have access to the tools they need to improve their quality of life or to increase awareness of how to change their lives.

Many of my first grade students have already faced many challenges in their lives.

Despite the difficulties they have faced they are filled with compassion and kindness towards others. Often they lack this same loving kindness towards themselves.

My Project

We are using mindfulness in our class to enhance our students' ability to not only increase self-control but to enhance their understanding of how to deal with the stresses of life and their difficult emotions.

Providing many examples of mindfulness for our students will not only enhance their emotional learning, it will also enhance their academic learning.

Read aloud and independent reading will be supported with this library.

This project is designed to create a mindfulness library for students. In first grade we read aloud. The library would provide more resources and examples of ways that mindfulness can positively impact their lives.
