“Ms. Karen Dempsey has been teaching yoga and mindfulness to Hope Partnership students for the past 4 years. She introduces both practices as a means to reduce stress and anxiety and to improve academic performance and classroom behavior. This month, she has the students working on poses which require trust to maintain balance. We are deeply grateful to have her as a part of our team and are acutely aware of the hope and joy she brings to our students.” Read more from Hope Partnership for Education’s February 2023 Newsletter
