Kylie Humphreys, Maitland NSW
Rainbow Kylie is a primary school teacher who has worked with children for 12 years. Her main areas of interest as an educator are student well-being, sensory awareness and making students feel special. So when she learned of the RCC Mindfulness Facilitators Course it was a perfect fit as it addressed each of these areas. As a teacher, Kylie knows that well-being directly effects student academic and social success and the ability for students to be happy. She believes it is a privilege to be a teacher and work so closely with children and help to shape the minds of the future. Minds of the 21st Century that need training in social skills, coping strategies, self-regulation, positive thinking and imagination. Young minds that need calm among the chaos and pressure of today’s busy lives. When completing this course she was inspired and excited to help children achieve this through mindfulness and meditation. Kylie first began using guided visualisation and meditation as a child and fell in love with the practise and the benefits. In adulthood she regularly practises mindfulness and meditation as it helps her to live in the moment, relax and be better at life. She is excited to share the RCC mindfulness and meditation lessons, her new mindfulness knowledge and tool box of mindful tricks with her own children and students in her area.
