Jason Tackett

Mindfulness Educator

Resources One to Another

Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Jason Tackett is a special education teacher and mindfulness educator in Salt Lake City, Utah. In his 15-year career, Jason has worked predominantly with students identified as being at-risk or as having special needs, particularly students identified as having severe emotional/behavioral disturbances. Jason considers his students and his own life’s journey to be his greatest teachers. He uses the resources he has collected along his life’s journey to support others as they navigate their own, believing that each of us possess the resources we need to move from surviving to thriving. Jason believes mindfulness supports us in locating those resources and bringing them into their fullest expression.

In 2015, Jason developed the Resources One to Another (ROTA) program, which is designed to be a journey of self-discovery and empowerment that supports students’ positive behaviors, self-esteem, and interpersonal relationships. ROTA focuses on developing and strengthening five major areas of emotional intelligence—self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills—through a strengths-based, multidisciplinary approach combining personal power, self-expression, the arts, movement, and mindfulness.

Jason is a seasoned presenter and public speaker, presenting throughout his district and state on mindfulness, emotional wellness in schools, and on empowering students and adults alike. He serves as a mentor/coach, a lead PBIS/MTSS teacher, a character education committee member, and as an education consultant for Primary Children’s Behavioral Health. Jason leads mindfulness-based after-school programs, consults with outside organizations on mindfulness programming, and works with parents to employ a mindful approach to parenting. He works within his community as a hospice volunteer, where he uses and shares mindfulness practices to support others at the end of their lives.
