Cheyne R. Scott Speaks at Mindful Awareness Academy for Children

On July 23, 2019, Cheyne R. Scott presented to a group of high school students at the Mindful Awareness Academy for Children (“MAAC”). MAAC is a non-profit organization that provides academic, social and emotional support for high school students. Montclair High School English teacher Andrea Smith-Morgan founded MAAC to address the achievement gap with a focus on English and Language Arts and a mindful approach to learning. During her presentation, Ms. Scott discussed how to apply mindfulness to the challenges that often face high school students as they face academic pressure, social tension, and prepare to transition to college.
