MANSFIELD, OHIO, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, April 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Quietly changing the game in Mansfield City Schools is a new teacher of mindful social and emotional learning from Mind Body Align, LLC, Brenda Engelman.
Engelman teaches social and emotional learning lessons to students in the classroom. She has a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from The University of Findlay and is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education. She has experience teaching in general classrooms as well as special education classrooms and is passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of children.
“Brenda makes it easy for students to practice mindfulness and make it a consistent part of the daily routine and culture of schools,” said Julie Braumberger, director of education for Mind Body Align. “She has an inherently positive, gentle way about her. As a teacher licensed up through grade three and with a special endorsement for early education of the handicapped, Brenda knows how to reach all the students. They love her.”
