Mindfulness is powerful means of dealing with the physical and emotional stress inherent in being a teacher and a student. Studies show that students who practice mindfulness experience increases in optimism, emotional control, empathy, perspective taking, prosocial goals, and mindful attention. Mindfulness also appears to support teachers making them better able to help students learn. Studies show that teachers who practice mindfulness show improvements in their own well-being, efficacy, and mindfulness and reduced burnout and stress.

Participants will be provided with several mindfulness tools that they can easily implement into their school days that will begin to shift the classroom environment.
