Teaching mindfulness: the privilege of positive impact.

The work and mission of Calmer Choice are made possible by our team of vetted and skilled instructors. We offer thorough training to grow our team and our reach in even more schools across Cape Cod.

The Instructor training immerses individuals in our innovative research-based curriculum for teaching mindfulness to children ages Kindergarten through fifth grade. This multifaceted training includes opportunities for classroom observation, curriculum study, peer feedback and supported teaching.

Expected outcomes from our training include:

  • Articulation of the core skills and benefits of Calmer Choice’s evidence-based mindfulness approach
  • Effective delivery of all 16 lessons of the Calmer Choice curriculum to an age-appropriate audience
  • A sense of welcome within the Calmer Choice community as a valued team member
  • And much more…
“I am so lucky I have this job. I see the benefits and the appreciation every time I walk into the classroom. They are so glad we are there.”
