Thanks for Mindfulness Grant ...
"Our grant from the foundation was used to study the effects on stress and attention of teaching mindfulness skills to my students. The results were so positive that I continue to teach these skills to all of my students even though the study was completed last year. I am also currently writing a curriculum to further strengthen the program by including metacognitive strategies to help students study more effectively. This was definitely a worthwhile project that will benefit many students, both here in Falls Church and elsewhere, now and in the future." - Dr. Nisha Sensharma, Social Studies / Psychology Teacer, GMHS
The thanks are rolling in this week ... as you contemplate sponsoring, donating and/or attending FCEF events, keep in mind the proceeds go to support our students and staff. One recipient of a teacher training grant for students with dyslexia and other reading challenges writes "Dear FCEF, Many thanks for the very generous monetary contribution to my Orton-Gillingham training this August with Arlington Public Schools! It will greatly help our students at Mount Daniel that struggle in reading. I can see the impact of using a multi-sensory approach from some basic online training I have had with OG. I appreciate your help! Sincerely, Brenna Mary."
