“Our project will focus on mindfulness activities, social emotional interventions and restorative teaching practices, including teaching with an equity lens to meet the needs of our students. This grant will help provide teachers with trauma informed and social and emotional teacher training as well as programming that supports mindful practices and social justice lessons. We hope that students will feel connected to their school and broader community, increase their leadership skills and have a sense of urgency to do their best in school, understanding that it directly relates to their quality of life and personal power.”
