My Students

We are a small International Baccalaureate school nestled at the end of a cul de sac. We are in a tight knit, blue collar working community where our school has serviced generations. We pride ourselves in community outreach, family involvement and building each other up!

Students are admitted into the program primarily based on need: economic, social- emotional, language based or identified delays.

All students are inquisitive and driven and encouraged to work together to meet individual goals, classroom goals and school/community goals.

My Project

Mindfulness is important, even at age 4! Learning how to quiet our minds and manipulate our bodies helps get us ready for learning. Practicing yoga with individual safe mats will make this possible.

As an International Baccalaureate School, we are charged with developing and cultivating young children on a global level, exposing them to more than just rigorous academics.

Yoga and mindful practice is a part of that!

With a class set of yoga mats, my students and I can learn and practice mindfulness and body awareness that will prepare them for the grades ahead and life outside of the classroom!
