Mr. Musumeci has spent two decades teaching, caring, and advocating for children in New York, NY, and Oakland, CA. As a teacher at Reach Academy in East Oakland from 2009 to 2014, he was a proponent of mindfulness, and was delighted when one of his students suggested the class create a mindfulness superhero. His class was comprised of twenty-six wonderful, lively, and smart fifth graders who loved mindfulness. Reach Academy is a transitional K-5 school where the vast majority of students are on free and reduced lunch, and 99 percent of the students are children of color. Mr. Musumeci’s 5th Grade Class is excited to publish a book of their own about mindfulness for other kids because they have benefitted so much from the practice.
