Behavioral Program Teacher
“I love the program! I teach in a behavior program and I find that the lessons are easy to
teach and meaningful to students. I love the extra resources as well! It is very concise and I love the way things are worded.”
“The 3rd grade teacher is doing a fantastic job incorporating the lessons throughout the day, and kids you would not have expected it from are independently requesting / utilizing mindful minutes and making I-statements.”
5th Grade Teacher
They loved it, especially the role-playing cards. When they reflected on re-framing their own negative automatic thoughts (NATs), they were honest and real about their struggling thoughts. It was a very effective and applicable lesson.”

“At the beginning of the year my students would not engage in SEL time. They were really resistant – now they ask for it!”
“It has been very positive for the students especially with all the hands on activities, the readings, and the drawing of pictures. The students are getting really good at making connections both at school and outside of school by using what they are learning in the SEL block.”
