Britt commented on Heart Centered 21st Century Learning

I taught students with learning difficulties for seven years and during that time saw up close the impact that trauma has on a child's ability to learn and thrive. Providing educators with the means for helping children learn mindfulness techniques to circumvent or counter traumatic experiences can unleash  children's potential in positive ways. If ignored, a traumatized child is often doomed to a repetition of the violence and dysfunction around them, as we educators know all too well. I certainly hope the CEI program receives enough support to become established in many school districts around the nation and the world. Everyone benefits in this scenario, both the children and the wider community.
