Summer Internships - The Center for Educational Improvement - Mindfulness

The Center for Educational Improvement is seeking virtual interns for Spring (start date around April 1) and Summer 2018 to assist with research related to our investigations  of the impact of mindfulness, yoga, and meditation on children and teachers. We are particularly interested in increasing educator understanding of the neurobiological impact of trauma and how mindfulness, yoga, and meditation enhance executive functioning, learning, and children’s well-being. We are also investigating four related areas: mindful school leadership, the relationship of mindfulness and student self-determination for students with disabilities, the implementation of STEM (Science Technology, Engineering, & Math)- Mindfulness/Yoga Play in early childhood education, and the use of an instrument we are currently validating to facilitate the development of compassionate school culture. Expectations: Interns participate for at least 3 months, assisting with conducting background research, writing articles, analyzing data, preparing workshops, posting blogs, and the development of upcoming books on these topics.  To apply send curriculum vitae, a letter of interest, and 3 references to Dr. Christine Mason, Executive Director at cmason@edimprovement.org
