Danielle Nuhfer specializes in teaching mindfulness to teens and teachers. A public school educator for fifteen years, she has presented school wide professional development to districts, facilitated district wide book studies, and is currently an adjunct professor at Neumann University where she teaches courses on mindfulness for educators.
Beginning with a personal practice ten years ago, Danielle has been an active proponent for integrating mindfulness into our school systems after witnessing first hand how these “simple” practices were transforming her students. From integrating small daily practices into her own classroom, she went on to pursue a Mindfulness for Educators certificate from Antioch University and a Positive Psychology certificate from the University of Missouri. She was also awarded a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education to complete her year-long Mindful Schools Training. In addition she holds a Masters in Education from Millersville University and is a certified yoga instructor.
Most recently, Danielle has created “Teaching Well” a site dedicated to helping teachers reduce stress and burnout while finding and sustaining balance and wellness inside and outside of their classrooms. Through original online courses, weekly content and local meetups, Teaching Well’s mission is to provide wellness services for educators and their students.
Danielle currently teaches mindfulness to both teachers and students but continues to offer services ranging from professional development, school presentations, workshops, and in-person OR online small group and individual sessions. She is honored and grateful to be a Mindful Schools Certified Instructor.
