A public school teacher and proud father of two children, Lucius Irvin, M.Ed., recently won “Teacher of the Year.” Seeking a solution to the rising number out of school suspensions Lucius began exploring social/emotional support through mindfulness. He won a $10,000 grant through the Great Schools Partnership to get 16 teachers trained in mindfulness, provide workshops for parents and to complete research with the University of Tennessee on the effectiveness of mindfulness in the classroom. He is finishing a year-long mindfulness certification with Mindful Schools this summer. Lucius is continuing his work with young people and families through providing mindfulness programs.
Possibilities Exist grew out of the need to support families and find solutions to everyday struggles. Lucius believes that no matter what situation we find ourselves in……..Possibilities Exist!
