Mindfulness is an intelligence of being; in the present moment, with a presence of heart, and a focus of attention and awareness to our thoughts, feelings, and surrounding environment. The practice of mindfulness is scientifically proven for its cognitive, social, and psychological benefits. Research has found that mindfulness training improves memory, attention, academic skills, social skills, emotional regulation, and self-esteem, as well as improves mood and decreases anxiety, stress, and fatigue. As such, mindfulness is an optimal educational tool for effective learning and teaching.
In support of our staff development, the Anneliese Schools recognizes the importance of offering Mindfulness Teacher Training, to all of our teachers. Mindfulness Teacher Training valuably increases teachers’ sense of well-being and teaching self-efficacy, strengthens their abilities to manage classroom behaviors, as well as helps establish and maintain supportive and positive relationships with their students and peers. The Anneliese Schools has selected ‘The Susan Samueli Center for Integrative Medicine,’ at the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine, for its comprehensive Mindfulness Teacher Training Program.
The Passion Project will fund the Mindfulness Teacher Training tuition costs, for all the Anneliese Schools teachers.
The Anneliese Schools Healthy Lunch Program sources organic, local, nutritious, and sustainable foods for all our daily, seasonal menus. Lovingly hand-made in our professional school kitchens, our tandorri chicken with rice, chicken tacos with salsa, and our chicken noodle soup are students’ all-time, favorite lunches. The Anneliese Schools carefully selected ‘Mary’s Free-Range Organic Chickens,’ to be our supplier. Mary’s Free-Range Organic Chickens grow naturally, with plenty of open space, on a ranch in sunny California. The chickens are raised in a humane farming manner, by allowing them to roam in a stress-free environment, that is four times the size of the average commercial ranch. They are fed an organic vegetarian diet, with no preservatives or antibiotics ever. The integrity of the Anneliese Schools Healthy Lunch Program is a considerable value.
Included in the coverage of costs, for Mary’s Free-Range Organic Chickens, is a semester of providing nourishing, chicken lunches, for all of our campuses.
