About the Instructor: Mridula Kamra

I am an educator interested in teaching mindfulness to everyone who is interested in the subject. I hold a master’s degree in education from the University of the Incarnate Word at San Antonio and a Master’s in Nutrition from Kansas State University.

This is my fourteenth year of teaching and I am currently teaching 6th grade science at the Secondary Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP) with Houston ISD.  I have taught several upper level science courses before this assignment. During the past decade of teaching, I have held a variety of leadership roles including serving as Department Head and have participated in a variety of teaching experiences that have ranged from analyzing data to leading campus improvement teams.

During this time, I have realized there is a need for Mindfulness training to all of us. I am also trained in yoga and Pranayama (breathing exercises). My hope is that the online mindfulness class can help our teachers and community achieve their full potential while working from home. As I am a lifelong learner, I look at this course as an opportunity to learn and grow myself.  Ultimately, I hope to impart what I have learned and practiced all these years to our community of educators and supporters.
