Úna Ryan (B.Ed, M.Ed) is the owner and director of REMind Ed®. Having become a mother and working with children daily for over 15 years as a Primary Teacher, Úna saw the need for a simplistic approach to daily wellbeing practices both at home and in schools. She knew the importance and significance of beginning this mission to empower fellow parents, teachers and anyone working with children.
She is passionate about mental health and wellbeing. Neuroscience highlights the significance of preventative measures, our daily mental health and self-care habits. Hence, this led to the creation of Mind Moments© wellbeing toolkit and initiative for schools, homes, small group settings and anyone working with children, Wellness Workshops for Adults and Children and the Mind Moments© and Mindfulness Class series with more to come in the future.
We need to encourage children to be proactive about understanding their emotions and teach them strategies to assist them with their wellbeing daily. Where better to do this than to embed it into the school day where they can practice these strategies with their peers and their school community. This in turn leads to it becoming part of the normal routine, a simple daily habit. It allows everyone to connect with themselves and each other, generates fun and provides the foundation for further wellbeing support and education.
Having worked as a Primary Teacher for over 15 years Úna has had the opportunity to work with all class levels and abilities from Infants to Sixth class in both multi-class and single-stream settings. Úna’s interest in understanding the best methodologies to use to cater for children’s needs led her to return to Mary Immaculate College to complete her Masters’s in Education. Over the years Úna has broadened her teaching experience through working in Special Schools summer programmes, creating and running summer camps, working as a drama teacher and undertaking various courses focusing on both academic and holistic areas.
As a teacher, Úna has always wanted to create a happy, safe and inspiring environment for the children she teaches. However, it was becoming a mother that cemented this for Úna.
Her interest in wellbeing and mental health deepened, and her passion for understanding better ways to parent fed her need to want to change teaching methods also. She wanted to create something that her boys and all children would benefit from not only at home but at school too.
