Feedback from the Teachers
"Happy Spots isn’t just a good place for our students to experience in the classroom setting alone, it was applicable to them at home as well. I had students report that it helped them navigate stressful moments at home. It even works for adults! As the classroom teacher leading the exercises it was a wonderful opportunity to help me feel grounded and available to do my best teaching too. It was such a great opportunity to hit the reset during the day and feel united."

"My 10y.o. daughter requests to do Happy spots when she is feeling anxious/emotional, particularly at the end of the end of the day. She is often on the verge of tears when we begin and by the end she is calm and feels more at peace. it has given her a sense of control by giving her a space to communicate any feelings she is strugling with and then shpwing her how to find her way to a different mindset."
