Mindfulness for OMA Staff

Tucson Unified's lead nurse shared with district principals her concern for the increased number of young children who are experiencing extreme anxiety. As a result, OMA leadership looked for a presenter who could share techniques for using mindfulness with students. We firmly believe that music, dance, theatre arts, and visual arts can be strong partners in helping children find comfort and success at school.

Certified specialist Holly Cluff, M.Ed, Ed.S, addressed mindfulness during a two-hour interactive workshop for OMA staff on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. Seen as a tool for supporting learning and getting back to learning, this workshop presented these topics:

  • What mindfulness is and how it works
  • What mindful learning is
  • What this looks like in the classroom

Ms. Cluff has spent 35 years in schools supporting students and adults. She provides services to increase student achievement, enhance teacher effectiveness, and develop collaborative learning environments.
