Last year we piloted one class with Inner Explorer’s mindfulness program. The one class who used it was the calmest class with the fewest incident reports (0 versus an average of 25 in the other classrooms!) and had the highest academic gains in reading (initially 10 of 28 students were below grade level, at the end of the year 0 of 28 were below, including several special needs students!). We are expanding into all the classrooms this year. - Principal, Sarasota, FL
Inner Explorer is very user friendly and easy to implement. We have seen a dramatic increase in the positive behaviors of the students in the classrooms where the program is done with fidelity. The investment of 5-10 minutes daily, comes back to you exponentially! Programs such as this should be required in all schools! Ileana Mellan, Principal, Mater Academy.
We had just started IE a few months prior to the marathon bombing in Boston. Third grade was particularly traumatized as that was the grade that lost Martin. By continuing to participate in IE each day after the bombing, IE served as good trauma first-aid for several reasons: Maintaining familiar routines and rituals Ongoing teaching of calm down strategies. A safe space and sense of security. Helped teachers and students with self-care Director of Special Ed and Student Support.
Inner Explorer has empowered our students to handle stress, anxiety, and negative emotions in a constructive manner. The 5-10 minute guided audio practices are long enough to provide immediate positive effects and short enough as to not disrupt instructional time. Teachers have said that they themselves have used the mindfulness strategies to reduce their own stress. Inner Explorer is simple to use, empowers students and teachers to self-regulate their emotions, and their team is always readily available to answer questions/address concerns Aida Trujillo, Assistant Principal
