On May 16, 2015, be well. teach well. partnered with PledgeCents and YogaOne Houston for “Celebrating ‘STAAR’ Educators”: A Yoga Fundraiser & Celebration of Teachers. A community of educators and their supporters came out to supporting teachers and administrators who want to bring mindfulness and yoga to their schools! Thank you to everyone who came out to make this event a success!
In November 2014, be well. teach well. was asked to present a breakout session at the 1st Annual Symposium on School-Based Yoga & Mindfulness, co-hosted by In-Powered and the University of Houston. In this popular session, Kelly and Christine facilitated exercises and activities that helped education leaders deepen their own mindfulness practice, as well as explore ways to sustain yoga and mindfulness in their own classrooms.
In October 2014, be well. teach well. hosted several after-school workshops for Teach For America Corps Members and Alumni. In these workshops, Corps Members and Alumni engaged in mindfulness and self-care practices, with an emphasis on how to apply these practices to their classrooms.
