Providing annual Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programmes for Educators is Kay’s passion, she loves working with educators in a safe and supportive setting. Teachers are certified on completion and many go on to do the .b and Paws curriculum training as the course is a pre-requisite.
Kay is calling on all stakeholders in education to take the initiative to provide wellness programmes for educators as the best way to foster and develop student’s well-being is to create support systems at national level to promote teachers well-being. We will in the long run be providing more compassionate, caring and effective places of learning with teachers reconnecting again with their joy and passion.
Kay’s mindfulness path began in The Sanctuary in 2002 with Stillness in the Classroom and has continued ever since. Kay’s first class honours Master’s research was a pilot study of Mindfulness in the Special School. The implications of the study on all the partners in education prompted Kay to train as a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher with the Institute of Mindfulness Based Approaches (IMA). It is her intention to bring mindfulness practices as a life skill to students as they negotiate the journey from childhood to adolescences and into adulthood.
