    It’s really great to have teachers who care more about just our academic growth, and I wish more classrooms would have these conversations.

    1. Madelyn Williams

      My name is Madelyn and I graduated from Padua in 2019. I had Mr. Shelton my junior year for physics. During his class, he took extra time to focus not only on mentally challenging us with school work, but to emotionally and spiritually enhance us as well. Through his persistence with meditation and truly caring about the whole individual, he created a safe space and community to help people live loving lives. His lessons definitely did not end after the class ended, as he taught life lessons that can be drawn upon whenever needed in the future.

    These topics are so important in our world today, and I am beyond thrilled that we are starting to have courageous conversations about these issues.

    I am a junior at Padua Academy and I have been a student of Mr. Shelton for 2 years now. After receiving the talk and trying to live a loving life, I have seen a huge difference in how I look at my personal and academic life. Talking with Mr. Shelton in class about loving lives and his leadership as a teacher has been the main factor in the change of how I see my life.

    During our conversations in class I feel like I am able to share my perspectives and am able to be heard and not judged. I have changed many of my views on the world to make myself personally happy and not just everyone else happy

    After talking about living loving lives with my class and Mr.Shelton I have a different view on my life goals now. Instead of making a lot of money I now want to do what truly makes me happy. This talk has changed my perspective of my goals and I am very grateful for that.

    After experiencing Mr. Sheltons “live a loving life” talk I have seen a change in the way I think about my academic achievements. My life has become less stressful and my grades have improved. Being able to engage in an open dialog about problems we are facing as students is extremely beneficial and has lead to changes in my life.

    Living loving lives has changed my outlook on certain stressors in my life. By Mr. Shelton’s talks, it has taught me to look at the positive things in life and to remind myself that I am trying my hardest and that is all that matters. He encourages us to reach for our goals and he tells us that whatever our goals are, we should be happy and content with our life.

    The practices brought to my life through mindfulness and meditation in my chemistry class my sophomore year of high school have stuck with me all the way through to my current sophomore year of college. Knowing the value of outside variables and balancing your reactions was a very important thing I’m grateful to have learned at such a young age.
