Biography

Since living in South East Asia as a teenager, Kevin has been drawn to Mindfulness and contemplative Studies. The commitment to personal practice and passion for the well being of her students led her to compassionate teaching. She believes that Mindfulness creates a space for students to experience balance in a world overwhelmed by busyness, social media, consumerism and technology. Mindfulness practice gives children permission to be still and quiet. It allows a time for them to witness and organize their thoughts and reactions along with developing positive, caring conversational skills. They can observe their environments and the people in them with curiosity and gratitude. After 28 years as a public school educator and developer of curriculum, Kevin has undeniable trust that children who practice Mindfulness, become adults that are Mindful!
