Inspiring children to become aware of their greatest potential is why Joseph chose the path of an educator. Joseph has taught the first, second, and third grade in Wichita, Kansas. Mr. Hamer is known by his colleagues for creating a safe and uplifting environment for his students to continuously learn and grow. After beginning his own journey of awareness in 2017, Joseph started teaching his students how to monitor and manage their emotions using mindfulness. The activities made such an incredible impact on his classroom community each year that he knew he needed to enlighten other teachers and parents. Thus, he began his career as an author and published Brain Awakes: Empowering Children Through Breath, Balance, and Reflection.
