Kimberly Harrington, the Commissioner of Education in New Jersey with whom we worked with last year, recently reached out to us again through Twitter to ask our team if we were able to present at a New Jersey Department of Education meeting on October 16th. This was a huge opportunity for us because it meant we would be presenting in front of important members of the NJ Department of Education!
On that school day, we left school early with Dr. MC on a bus to the DOE building. Dr. Dauber, the HSN principal, and Dr. Carter, the CMS principal, came with us too.
Once there, we were able to introduce ourselves to the educators in the room and talk a bit about our project - who we were, what we've done so far, and what we hope to accomplish in the future.
One activity we did with them was a mindful eating activity, where we put bowls of M&Ms on the tables and led them through how exactly to eat mindfully.
All in all, this presentation was a great success and we were able to reach many important members of the educational community! Thank you, Mrs. Harrington, for giving us this opportunity.
