Why Mindfulness In School?

In today’s world, the stressors of daily life can cause children and adults alike to feel frustrated, overwhelmed and anxious.

Calm Classroom Testimonials

“I have seen many programs come and go in the Chicago Public Schools and Calm Classroom is one of the few that I embrace with my whole heart. It is intentional, well researched, and consistent. The message is simple and elegant. It works.”

“The few, but powerful, minutes of Calm Classroom every morning and afternoon are some of the most meaningful, stress-free moments in each of our school days.”

“I believe Clam Classroom has helped the overall environment of the classroom. It keeps me calm when I feel rushed or stressed and makes me recognize my own emotions. I think the students feel better when they have a chance to take a breath and relax their mind.”

“I teach students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. To watch my students execute Calm Classroom is absolutely AMAZING! It REALLY helps them  regulate their frustrations and anxieties.”

Calm Classroom has changed the whole dynamic of my classroom. My children are able to self-regulate their emotions more easily.”
