The Center for Educational Improvement (CEI) partners with schools and districts to help them implement mindfulness, heart centered learning, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math). We offer professional development workshops to improve teacher’s understanding of trauma, neuroscience, social emotional learning, and mindfulness. If you are particularly interested in improving your STEAM offerings, check out our workshops designed for preschool and elementary teaching teams. With all of our work, we focus on innovations, building exemplary schools and principals, conducting workshops, and undertaking research to create optimal learning environments.
