Mindfulness & Teaching


As a teacher, I’ve had great success in making mindfulness a part of my classroom , but first , and most importantly, it’s a practice that is a part of my every day living.

The following links are resources for learning more about mindfulness, incorporating it into the classroom, office and lessons. There is no need to recreate the wheel – there are LOTS of resources out there, it’s a matter of finding the ones that resonate, practicing,and making good use of them.
