Biography

Stéphanie has been an elementary teacher for more than 18 years in a French Immersion school in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. She began her journey with Mindfulness 15 years ago, attending yearly Mindfulness retreats for the past 8 years. Wanting to continue to learn and grow, the next step for her was to attend an 8 week MBSR course as well as an 8 week Mindful Self-Compassion course. Soon after that, she was hoping to bring Mindfulness to her students and came across Mindful Schools. It was an instant hit! She since then taught Mindfulness to over 200 students. She has also presented at conferences and has provided workshops for special Mental Health initiatives in schools. Soon after the completion of the Year-Long Certification Program, she enrolled in more courses through Mindful Schools finding the quality of instruction exceptional.
