Schools should be mindful places.  In my experience they rarely are.  What can a teacher do? Create a mindful classroom!

Social Emotional Learning and Mindfulness-based Contemplative Practices in Education - What Meditation Really Is

Social Emotional Learning and Mindfulness-based Contemplative Practices in Education - What Meditation Really Is | Creatively Teaching: Arts Integration | Scoop.it

A Meditation from the Field from Linda Lantieri and Madhavi Nambiar

Mr. Gray, an educator in his second year of teaching in New York City wrote out his resignation letter and left it on his desk. As a final measure, he chose to attend a Renewal and Restoration Retreat for Educators provided by The Inner Resilience Program – a nonprofit organization started right after September 11, 2001 to help teachers in Lower Manhattan begin to heal and recover from the tragic events of that day. He felt he had nothing to lose. “I was so tired of trying to balance the pressures I was feeling, I wanted to quit. After the retreat I went home and ripped up the resignation letter sitting on my desk. I found that place in me that knows why I wanted to be a teacher in the first place.”
