Guest Blog by Breon Michel: Everyday Mindfulness for Families


Everyday Mindfulness for Families Guest Blog by Breon Michel: Have you ever caught yourself not paying attention in the middle of a conversation with a loved one? You were physically there, but your mind was somewhere else – already thinking about what’s for dinner or what time your son needs picked up from soccer practice. The mind’s ability to plan is essential to family well-being, but so is the ability to stay in the present moment. In today’s fast-paced, frenetic world, the mind often gets stuck in planning mode.

School Safety


School Safety In response to the recent school shootings, school safety comes into question, as it should. Certainly, with such tragedy but as it should be on a regular basis, schools have revisited crisis plans and steps taken daily to best ensure campus safety for their students and staff. To provide schools with realistic assistance for students with mental health issues would be advantageous – meaning what they really need versus what they have.

The Right Fit


The Right Fit As a teacher and principal I was often asked by parents how they would know whether the current school choice was the right “fit” for their child. Or, they would share with me that they knew the current school was not the right fit and, because I knew their child and their family so well, they would ask for my thoughts on the new school they were considering. I have many such stories, but one stands out for me today. Although I haven’t seen her for a number of years now, I know she is a beautiful little girl. She [...]
