My name is Jill Guerra and I have taught in Bay Area public schools for over ten years. As an elementary school teacher, my pedagogy was always one of social justice; equality and sustainability for all. I came across mindfulness work several years ago, and my vision of who I want to be and what I want to contribute to the world expanded. This is where The Love Curriculum was born. I’m finding that what we desperately need in the world are human beings who are compassionate, kind, grateful, peaceful, forgiving, empathetic, and who see themselves in others. Through the on-going process of my own self-actualization, I came to realize that the approach must be LOVE... love of Self, love of community, love for other human beings, no matter what container they come in. The Love Curriculum is my approach to and the content of my teaching.
