Kory O’Rourke

Training Program Coordinator, Mindful Schools


Kory O’Rourke has been a public high school teacher and school leader for over a decade. She believes that mindfulness is an essential tool for building equity in our schools and our communities.

She uses her personal practice to support the work she does with students, teachers, and school leaders/administrators in supporting mindfulness instruction in schools, and beyond.

Three years ago, Kory began developing a whole-school implementation program, which is now successful in her high school, with ties to the middle school.

Kory is passionate about mindfulness and is eager to share her experiences and provide support to educators who also want to bring mindfulness to their students.
