Current research in cognitive neuroscience shows that cultivating mindfulness in the classroom offers many benefits for both the teachers as well as students.
Mindfulness promotes the regulation of emotion, attention, thought and behavior. These executive functions are strengthened in teachers who have mindfulness training
Since teachers set the emotional tone for the classroom, learning mindfulness techniques helps them create a more effective learning environment.
Mindfulness for Educators Training (MFE) makes mindfulness accessible and relatable and easy to implement in the classroom.

Her session was not only calming for us (we just attended a wonderful three day learning experience) but also provided the group with many techniques to use with young children!!!

"Thank you so much for providing us with such a meaningful and successful workshop. As we mentioned at the time we all felt that you did a masterful job of meeting each of our teachers at the exact point at which they are currently holding in regard to mindfulness. This is an extremely difficult task which you seemed to achieve with ease. We know that much effort and mindfulness went into your preparation. We look forward to continuing this relationship." ~ Rabbi Michael Weichselbaum, Menahel/Principal Bnos Malka Academy, NY
“I thought you'd like to know that a group of the teachers in our pre school have been meditating every morning in one of the classrooms. It's five weeks today since we started. What a wonderful addition to our day! Thank you so much for your workshop which provided us with the inspiration to do this.” ~Rosemary Cunningham, Teacher, Stephen Wise Early Childhood Center, NYC
