Once upon a time I was about to lose my head at R… because we were in a fight (argument). And I was about to yell at him, but then I remembered mindfulness and I calmed down and said sorry. (True story)”—4th Grade Student 
What Teachers say:
It gave me different strategies to settle myself in the classroom.
I use the strategies taught by Betsy to calm students’ bodies and focus their minds on a particular task.
When I can, it allows me to take some needed breaks during the day.
Taking time before responding to student behaviors that frustrate me.
From time to time, I see one of my students close his eyes and breathe deeply. This is a student who really enjoyed the program and was using it often outside of school. He uses this strategy when he is feeling overwhelmed or is lacking focus. It helps him get back in the swing of things and be productive!
