The Glendora Education Foundation has supported Christy Jones’ Healthy Living program for kindergarten through fifth grade in the Glendora Unified School District for six years now.
Christy’s passion for teaching children about their whole-body health is inspiring. As a parent of students who have gone through her classes; I have seen her teaching style make an impact on my children. In today’s busy learning environment, Christy gets her message through by engaging the students and having them actively participate, which leads to subject retention, they remember what she has shared with them! Her proactive approach to
mindfulness is a fundamental change that is necessary in this day in age when students, teachers, and parents are feeling stressed out and overwhelmed much of the time. We at GEF fully support Christy’s initiatives and methods for the students of GUSD.

Co-President Glendora Education Foundation
Christy has brought to our district a keen awareness of the importance of both physical and social-emotional wellness for teachers and students. We are also using her to work directly with students to teach them these concepts, increase resilience, and decrease anxiety. Christy is an absolute wealth of knowledge, and she continues to expand her tool kits with the most current and up-to-date research on a range of topics including nutrition, brain research, brain-body connection, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence, among others. Christy is energetic and passionate about creating schools where teachers and students can thrive, and her joy is absolutely contagious!

I am a licensed clinical social worker who works as a therapist and clinical supervisor in
multiple settings. Christy Jones has given me not just mindfulness tools for my personal life (which have been transformational) but also for my professional life. In counseling sessions with clients, I have been utilizing Christy Jones’ mindfulness strategies and have seen how they truly benefits my clients. Truly, everyone can benefit from Christy Jones’ mindfulness strategies and tools!
