Erin Hurley, M.Ed., RYT, RCYT, was the 2015-2016 Fairfax County Public Schools “Elementary School Counselor of the Year” and formally the Vice President of the Virginia School Counselor Association. She has worked in public education for twelve years, spending her first seven years as a kindergarten teacher before completing her M.Ed. in Counseling and Development at George Mason University. In addition to her current role as an Elementary School Counselor at Cherry Run Elementary in Burke, VA, she is also a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher. After completing the Mindful Schools curriculum training, Erin has implemented the 8-week curriculum into several classrooms at her school. She contributed to the elementary mindfulness curriculum for MINDS Inc. and is co-teaching a Families and Children Mindfulness class with the Insight Meditation Community of Washington. In addition to integrating yoga philosophies into her classroom lessons, she also leads the before school yoga club. Erin has collected data on incorporating yoga into small group counseling to improve student behavior. The results have only made her more passionate about bringing mindfulness and yoga practices to students to assist them with impulsivity and emotion regulation.
