Michelle Cassidy – Mental Health, Accessible Mindfulness, and true Modern Learning

By Chris Cluff

It’s amazing how many rabbit holes one man can encounter when he’s chasing squirrels! Join Chris Cluff as he finds, explores and pushes the boundaries in education.

I’ve been thinking about the times in my EDU career when I was witness to a kind of deeper truth or source code. The moments tend to be fleeting and sometimes I missed large parts because my mind was launchd into in a different place than my ears. But, when I held the moment and flowed with the conversation I walked away feeling the satisfaction of truely learning a lesson. 
My talk with Michelle, a clinician leading a Mental Health strategy for a large school board, was one of the moments where I think I got a peak behind the curtain and started to understand the inner workings of education. And a truth that emerged was that we just might be coming to place where curriculum, classroom, and mental health are seen as equal and connected components of a larger, life continuum.
