Mindfulness in Schools
"See What Teachers Are Saying"
classThe following comments are from students who have experienced Project CARES in their classrooms. Schools represented are Ancillae Assumpta Academy in Wyncote, Simmons Elementary in Horsham, and Erdenheim Elementary School in Flourtown, PA.

Frith Dekerilis, 2nd grade teacher ~
After practicing mindfulness, students are on-task, ready to learn, and so much happier, I’m also happier when I take time out to do mindfulness. The morning sessions take about 10 minutes.. When possible, I will also do a short breathing exercise before a test or quiz. When I do that, the mood is calmer, and the test scores are stronger. I see better results.

Cary Kelly, Montesorri teacher ~
By the end of the school year, the number of times I needed to redirect a distracted student’s attention back to schoolwork was cut in half, That means I can spend more time on lesson, If children are ready to learn, I can offer them even more.

Jill Rosenfeld, 4th grade teacher ~
Jacquie has helped the teachers at our school with learning mindfulness, which in turn helps our students. She is a wonderful person and resource!

Meg Class, 1st grade teacher ~
The lessons were greatly anticipated by both children and myself. Jacquie has such a gentle encouraging, kind way of handling 6-7 year olds and their enthusiasm as well as their wiggly behaviors. The children were absorbed by well thought out lessons and their presentation. WE practice at least 2 times daily and if I forget the children will quickly remind me we haven’t done our mindful breathing yet.

Lauren Dixon, 5th grade teacher ~
The program is really great and I think 5th grade is an appropriate age to start. However, I do not think their experience should be over, Mindfulness takes practice and time.
