Disruptive kids at Robert W. Coleman Elementary are being taught breathing techniques and meditation instead of spending time in an empty classroom after school or making a trip to the principal’s office.
The school partnered with local non-profit Holistic Life to create their own “Mindful Moment Room."
Students may be referred to this room by a teacher, or they may self-refer themselves there when they need to find their calm.
So far, suspensions have gone down to zero and the program has now been in the works for several years!
Other schools have started picking up on the practice too.
