A message from Ann:
As a high school teacher and tutor of teenagers, I have observed an increase in stress on the lives of my students. The effect of stress not only impairs academic success, it also affects a student’s sense of self in harmful ways.
A popular solution to combat stress is meditation. I have studied meditation for the past year and taken courses in mindfulness. The courses are part of a Creative Writing Program at University of Toronto.
I have been successful in helping students manage their stress in order to achieve their academic goals and to experience personal well-being by implementing my new learning in mindfulness.
