What Teachers are Saying...
“The MindUP™ program has not only changed me as a teacher, but has also had an amazing impact on my students. Imagine how wonderful it would be if students everywhere were given the opportunity to become brain experts!”
— Lori Nunn, Pre-K Teacher, Momentous Institute (formerly Salesmanship Club’s Jonsson School)
“Some of the students are beginning to understand that they need to focus on their learning, that they have control of what they want to focus on so that their learning can progress. Now the students can do “self talk” messages to themselves when they get distracted. More learning is happening within the classroom!”
1st grade teacher, Waianae Elementary, Waianae, HI
“When we need to calm down, settle in, and focus… MindUP™ helps. It’s also helped my 2nd graders understand their own behaviors and emotions. We can discuss the different ways we’d respond to something disturbing, sad, or stressful using the brain, and help them understand why we react the way we do sometimes.”
-2nd grade teacher, Carpenter Community Charter School, Studio City, CA
“I think [MindUP™] truly puts our lives into perspective. By appreciating each moment and focusing on the present we are able to be more purposeful in what we do and hence, we are able to succeed and feel more satisfied.”
-Kindergarten teacher, Charlotte Lab Schol, Charlotte, NC
