“This class [EDU-X787K, Banish Burnout] helped me reflect upon my own life. There is nothing more important than taking care of one's self. When I signed up for this class, I was struggling to get it done. However, now that I have completed the readings and the projects, I feel empowered. I feel stronger. I feel that this class has helped me slow down and "smell the roses". Thank you!” -- Wanda L., Educator, Grades 7 & 8, Lakenheath Middle School, United Kingdom
"My knowledge of mindfulness has changed a lot since beginning this course [EDU-X767L, Introduction to the Mindful Classroom]. I now know many more specific applications for this practice in my classroom, and for my life. Specifically, ideas like sensory mindfulness and its application on writing is something that I have taken away from my time in this course." -- Andrew Herrmann, Educator, Havertown, Pennsylvania
