The leadership of the Center for Distance and Online learning have invited me to bring mindful awareness practices into TEAL (Technology Enhanced Arts Learning) and TELA (Teaching English Learners through the Arts) professional development opportunities for teachers and administrators. This emphasis on transformative SEL, incorporating mindfulness, cultural relevance and arts integration, are bringing new and emerging practices into classrooms all across LA County for the benefit of teachers and students. The increased awareness of diversity, equity and inclusion drives all of the work.
