Empower Your Staff to Support Mindfulness Practice in Your School

Our Train-the-Trainer program empowers school staff to become leaders in supporting mental and emotional health in their school communities by providing ongoing training to staff throughout the school year.

Our professional development sessions strengthen connection among educators by creating space for practice, discussion, and reflection while learning how to nurture the Calm Classroom program in their classrooms.

We offer this learning model via interactive virtual workshops.

Why Mindfulness in the Classroom?

Mindfulness is a foundational skill that can help students and teachers reduce stress and anxiety, increase mental and emotional well-being, and engage more fully in the learning environment. Mindfulness is our ability to pay attention to our present moment thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and surrounding environment with a kind and open attitude.
