    Hi All,
    I reside in New Zealand working as a secondary school teacher and have a son with ADHD so I feel learning more about mindfulness in teaching and parenting would be hugely beneficial for my lifestyle. I am studying towards gaining a qualification in inclusive education as I work with at risk youth. But I think that any learning of mindfulness could adapt my life in a positive way, so I am looking forward to it.

    Hello! I am excited to join you this week. I am an elementary teacher in Michigan, and have been teaching the Mindful Schools curriculum in my classroom for a few years now. My personal practice has changed the way I teach and view emotions in the classroom. It is such a joy to watch the children grow in using the mindfulness tools they are taught, and I am always curious to learn more ways to teach these strategies.

    Good Evening.
    I am a diverse learners’ teacher and Social & Emotional Learning leader to a high school in my district. Two years ago my school used Transcendental Meditation. During that time our attendance increased along with grade; behavioral infractions and the suspension rate decreased. I miss this program. I want to be able to offer my students other methods to deal with daily trauma and increase their knowledge of SEL.

I’ve meditated in the past and in the present but haven’t implemented meditation as much as I’d like to in my classes. I hope to learn new things so that I can bring them to my classes. My students love the quiet moments of meditation.

    Hello all,

    As an elementary school counselor, I continue to see the need for our youngest students to learn to calm their bodies and minds in order to be successful in the classroom and in everyday life. Our district is trauma informed and committed to best practice so we are always looking for new tools, strategies and techniques.
    Thank you!
