The Mindful Teacher Foundation

Urbana-Champaign, Illinois


Our Mission


The Mindful Teacher Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation serving the Urbana-Champaign area.  

We are working to provide training and support for educators from pre-school to high school who want to cultivate mindfulness for their classrooms and in their own lives.

To accomplish this mission, the foundation has three primary objectives:

  • To educate teachers, administrators, students, families, and the general public about the benefits of mindfulness;

  • To help educators develop and sustain a personal mindfulness practice so they are able to model and teach from direct experience; and

  • To select age-appropriate, evidence-based mindfulness curriculums and provide the teacher training and support required to implement those curriculums in the classroom.
