DESCRIPTION: This course is designed to examine the theory and practice of mindfulness and how it can influence both a teacher’s personal and professional life. Basic mindfulness practices, neuroscience, identification of thoughts and emotions, and mindful communication practice will be explored, as well as applying
these practices/concepts to both personal and professional situations. In addition, clear connections will be made between how personal practice can inform classroom management and interactions with students.
