What We Offer:
Founder: Josh Kettell
During my 15 years as an educator, I've found what I believe are some universal truths - education is about relationships, it's about finding and pursuing passions, and it's about the simultaneous exploration of self and our connection to the world around us, and that ultimately, each moment offers us an opportunity for growth as long as we allow ourselves to be open to it.
As a classroom teacher, much of my success has come from creating positive learning environments that foster inclusion, confidence to take risks, and an intrinsic desire to better oneself and others. My desire to help students achieve not only academic success but also holistic well-being led me to incorporate social-emotional learning techniques into my classroom, especially those associated with mindfulness.
Over the last 4 years, I have taught mindfulness in classes ranging from K-12, created advisory programs, and led the development of school-wide wellness initiatives. I have also facilitated professional development for teachers and parents, and I have given presentations at international teacher conferences as well as being a presenter at TEDx.
Education is more than a profession to me. It is a calling to serve the greater good. Through Radiant Mind, I intend to challenge our current paradigm of success in education by providing experiences that support the whole child and provide them with essential life skills. I look forward to serving you and your community in our mutual pursuit of continued education.
