Raquel “Kiki” Mariotti has been with DallasISD for 12 years. Along the way, she has integrated her social work practice with practicing and teaching mindfulness meditation and yoga. Mindfulness and yoga practice opened her mind and heart in ways she never thought possible, and so she wanted to share this new way of relating to help others in their healing. She has since taught numerous mental health clinicians, students, staff, and parents these techniques. Her ongoing work around this topic can be found in her monthly newsletter called “The Mindful Moment” which is available here: https://www.dallasisd.org/Page/72761 If you’d like to receive the newsletter, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
