My Project

As the music teacher at C. Elementary School, I have the privilege of teaching every student in the entire school. I would like to use this platform to introduce SEL and mindfulness strategies to students and create a ripple effect throughout our community. I am currently taking a 200 hour yoga teacher and SEL facilitator training through Breathe for Change.

Your donation toward yoga mats and props will allow me to provide adaptations of poses to students based on their individual needs during mindfulness and SEL workshops.

I will use yoga and mindfulness to teach character and SEL concepts such as kindness and self-regulation. I will incorporate music education by playing music during these activities and discussing how music portrays and influences emotions. Your donation will benefit the entire school in ways that will go beyond the classroom and into their lives!
