Calmness for Children

Since 2011, I have been leading classroom research in mindfulness-based emotional intelligence training program. I am in charge of designing the curriculum for an international school as well as teaching and training other teachers on introducing mindfulness to their students.  This program embraces practices from Western secular mindfulness and engaged Buddhism.

In April of 2015, I became certified by Paws .b to teach secular mindfulness skills to children between the ages of 7 and 11 years old.

Then, in June of 2017, I expanded my training by becoming certified to teach mindfulness in the classroom by Mindful Schools, a comprehensive K-12 program based in the United States.

Calmness for Families

In 2017, I began working closely with many parents of the children that I taught in class. I wanted to both help these parents learn to practice mindfulness for their own wellbeing and be able to expand my research to see the connections between mindfulness in children and their parents.

I held regular group practices for the parents and am now looking into expanding this training to an online platform that can be accessed here.

Workshops for Teachers

Starting in 2016 I began to put together dedicated training workshops for my fellow teachers in order to help them learn how to nurture a happy, calm and compassionate learning space through simple practices.

Based off of the success of these trainings I created a professional learning community (PLC), which met regularly and shared teaching experiences with each other. 

I am a firm believer that happy teachers can change the world.
