Mindful with Children, LLC was founded by Matt Aborn, an experienced educator who has been in the field for over twenty years. After working as a classroom teacher, Matt realized that many schools did not teach children the skills they needed to be successful. He returned to graduate school to explore how to bridge this gap. He was awarded his Ed.M from the Harvard Graduate School of Education having benefitted from study with renowned educators such as Howard Gardner, Eleanore Duckworth, and Ellie Drago-Severson. Each of these teachers shared key insights with him into how individuals learn best, and how environments can be designed to best facilitate meaningful growth. With these understandings in hand, Matt began designing and implementing specialized educational programs in his subsequent roles as a learning specialist, curriculum coordinator, tutor, and Head of Lower School (Elementary School Principal). Through Mindful with Children, LLC, along with his team, Matt now offers children a comprehensive, holistic, and tailored program of support, carefully designed to meet their academic needs.
