My Students

Some people think that middle school is the hardest level to teach. That may be true for me on some days, but many of my favorite days are the ones I spend with my students. While we all come from different backgrounds, we try to create a community when we enter the classroom.

Middle school is full of beautiful humans who are hiding who they are as they wait for the right moment to reveal themselves.

My project seeks to help foster connection and a sense of self through regular yoga practice, so my students can feel comfortable being their authentic selves.

My Project

Through Donors Choose, I have been able to go to professional development to become a Breathe for Change Wellness Champion and a Certified Yoga Teacher.

I would like to take what I have learned and bring it back to my classroom communities, but while some students have the resources to bring their own mats to use at school, others do not.

We are requesting yoga mats, blocks, and straps to use in their practice. It's so much easier to become a yogini when you have the resources to support your yoga practice. Through this project, I would like to be able to provide the supplies in order for all students to participate. My hope is that a regular yoga practice will help students create communities of wellness.
