Mindfulness for Teachers
April 23, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$106
Mindfulness is a hot topic in education right now. This session exists to help educators implement mindfulness practices in the classroom to help students regulate their behavior and focus on learning.
More specifically, (as explained by the ETTC): “Teachers will explore evidence pointing to the positive effects of mindfulness including increased lowered stress, greater ability to focus, self-awareness, as well as improvements in physical and mental health. Experiential activities include breathing, visualization and mindful moving techniques.”
The speaker of this event is also the founder of Toolbox for Teachers, Joanna
Schwartz. Toolbox for Teachers exists to help teachers harness the power of educators to bring about positive change in the classroom. With teaching experience, a Masters of Education and a Masters in Counseling with a concentration in holistic studies, Joanna has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with educators/school professionals to help incorporate mindfulness in their classrooms.
