Uniquely Qualified Instructor

MaryAnn Brittingham is a highly experienced teacher, leading expert in working with students who have challenging behaviors in a variety of settings, and a national presenter on using MINDFULNESS practices in the classroom. MaryAnn is known for her motivational seminars that not only inspire, but give teachers the specific strategies they need to make positive changes to increase students’ success in school, both academically and socially.

She is the author of many books, including Transformative Teaching: Changing Today’s Classrooms Culturally, Academically & Emotionally; Respectful Discipline; and Strengthen Students’ MINDFULNESS: Increase Your Students’ Self-Control While Reducing Anxiety and Challenging Behaviors, the extensive handbook you will receive at the seminar. MaryAnn focuses on practical solutions for helping students be successful in school – socially and academically.

She brings to the seminar not only her extensive knowledge of mindfulness and the science behind it, but strategies and ideas you can use to help your own students understand and use the practices themselves.
