Mindful Education Lab Director, Joshua Aronson, Named Executive Advisor to the Casa Laxmi Foundation

Mindful Education Lab Director, Joshua Aronson, is named Executive Advisor to the Casa Laxmi Foundation. Casa Laxmi is directing a 115 million dollar project to educate poor children and wealthy children in the same school using many of the interventions the Mindful Education Lab Program have been developing using thier Lab--socioemotional learning, mindfulness, teacher training, and 4-dimensional curriculum.  The Casa Laxmi institute will thus be a part of our pipeline to prosperity at NYU, a place for our best teachers trained at NYU to participate in a project and enjoy life in a respectful school where teacher well-being and teaching is every bit as important as student well-being and learning. "This is a big day for our lab, Metro, Steinhardt, and NYU —a beginning of a beautiful relationship between our organizations" , remarked Joshua Aronson.
