CARES Calm Classroom Training at Grape Street Elementary

On August 14, the Managing Director of CARES, Kate Sheehan, LCSW, and Tom Babayan, LMFT facilitated a Calm Classroom training for teachers and teaching assistants at Grape Street Elementary. During the interactive training, teachers learned the science behind mindfulness and the physical and mental benefits of mindfulness, as well as how to incorporate Calm Classroom activities and skills into their everyday teaching routines. The teachers identified skills they want to work on with their students, including emotion regulation, and the presenters explained how Calm Classroom’s breathing, stretching, relaxation and focusing activities can build these important skills!
