A Mindfulness Coach is a dedicated full-time staffing resource that provides your school with the consistent support and expertise required to meaningfully develop the knowledge, skill sets, and tools required to realize educational cultures rooted in mindfulness.
Like any classroom subject, mindfulness is a skill and practice that must be intentionally developed. A Calmer Choice Mindfulness Coach provides the targeted support needed for schools to meaningfully teach students how to integrate mindfulness into their lives. Working side-by-side with educators and staff, the Coach will amplify and extend the Calmer Choice Classroom Program by providing individual and team support to effectively weave mindfulness across subjects and into each classroom.
Schools with access to a Mindfulness Coach can expect greater engagement with the implementation, application of mindfulness programming as well as a greater likelihood of mindfulness being sustainably integrated into the culture of a school.
