Mindfulness Integration LLC
As an educator of over 37 years, I have always strived for new ways to help my students find success. Six years ago I came across a program on mindfulness. I introduced it to my students and was encouraged by the changes I saw in my room. I continued to research and started my own practice. It changed the way I ran my classroom. I integrated mindfulness into all aspects of our day. I became a believer when others on staff noticed a difference in my students and asked what I was doing. Students were able to self regulate, and showed empathy and compassion towards peers as they moved throughout the building.
A passion was born! I continued to share the importance of mindfulness by conducting training sessions, in-service seminars and daily practice sessions for teachers in my district. After retiring from teaching, I felt compelled to continue to spread the word about the benefits of integrating mindfulness into the lives of children and adults. Mindfulness Integration LLC was created!
