Priya Singhvi - Cultural Competency and Social Emotional Learning

Welcome, y’all! I am Priya Singhvi, a counselor, connector, and coach with over 13 years of teaching and consulting experience in public and private schools, nonprofit organizations, and community agencies. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Resilience Coach, and Certified Diversity Professional born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I currently serve as the Director of Health and Wellness at Rye Country Day School; curriculum creator and facilitator of Learners for Life for Global Online Academy; and CEO & Founder of Meaningful Minds.

I have a certification in diversity and inclusion from Cornell University, a Master of Science from Southern Methodist University, and Bachelor of Arts from Austin College.

My purpose-driven mission is simple: help minds thrive. I am passionate about social-emotional learning, mindfulness, student-teacher relationships, neuroscience, and cultural competency and modeling research-based best practices—this is what has been at the heart of my work with adolescents, the teachers who lead them, and the parents who love them.

I have worked with Harvard-Westlake, Bay Area BlendEd Consortium, Collin College, Universal Technical Institute, Texas Woman’s University, Punahou School, Southern Methodist University, and The OESIS Group. I have also presented at NAIS, Bay Area BlendED Symposium, OESIS, the Beyond Bullying Conference, Mental Health America Adolescent Symposium, and more on my research and work with students.

As a Lausanne Learning Consultant, Priya exemplifies the Lausanne Learning Five Consulting Characteristics:

  1. Student-Centered Character: LL Consultants always keep each student at the center of the conversation in imagining what “could be” from “what is”
  2. Sustaining Character: LL Consultants are focused on working with the school to implement practices that can be sustained over the long term to support the school’s mission
  3. Imaginative Character: LL Consultants are expert and thus can imagine different answers as you interrogate the key question or questions that you are being asked
  4. Independent Character: LL Consultants ensure that their clients become independent of them over time, not co-dependent
  5. Fearless Character: LL Consultants won’t tell their clients what they want to hear but what, in their professional opinion, should be said
