Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn basic brain anatomy including where the limbic system, amygdala, and prefrontal cortex are located; the brain's role in directing throughts, emotions and behaviors; and mindfulness tools including mindful breathing and gratitude that activate the prefrontal cortex and promote self-regulation and impulse control.
Hello all learners and parents!  My name is Christy, and I teach classes that help children unlock the mystery of their mind and promote overall stress management, emotional regulation, and impulse control.  I have 17 years of experience using research-based strategies to teach students how their brains work and how to cultivate more calm in their brains and bodies.

My academic background is in School Psychology.  I have a Masters in Education (MSE) and Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree in the field of School Psychology with over 20 years of experience working with youth.  I was certified in 2021 as a Growing Up Mindful (GUM) practitioner.  I have worked in the private practice setting since 2016, teaching mindfulness, self-regulation, self-empowerment, and emotional awareness in both the small group and individual setting.   As a psychometrist, I have extensive experience administering comprehesive psychoeducational evaluations, including asessments of intellectual functioning, executive functioning, and impulse control and self-regulation.  I have worked with individuals ages 4 to adult as well as a wide range of diagnoses, including ADHD, Autism, learning disabilities, Dyslexia, physical disabilities, and behavior disorders.
This class has no homework.  Students will often be given access to optional worksheets to complete at home to reinforce the curriculum taught in class.

Students will need a quiet environment that is free of distractions. Also, students should bring a blank piece of paper and a writing utensil to class.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Sensitive topics will be avoided.  If a student brings up a potentially sensitive/mature topic, the teacher will redirect them to more age-appropriate topics.  

Additionally, videos from the Brain Talk curriculum will be shared in class via screenshare.  No account for Brain Talk is required by learners, and learners do not need to visit any external websites during class.  

*Please note that this class is not intended to serve as therapy.
