Course Description

Learn How to Model and Promote Well-being to Your Students

Designed for educators looking to enhance classroom productivity, decrease stress and cultivate a caring and peaceful classroom, our mindfulness training course helps teachers enhance the sense of well-being among their students and school community. In this course, we will introduce learners to the concept of the Mindful Classroom, utilizing real-world scenarios to drive home the tenets of this program.

In a mindful classroom, teachers are able to encourage collaboration, foster a sense of excitement about learning, and reduce stress and increase success for students and staff. While this may sound too good to be true, educators across the nation are implementing mindfulness strategies to create a happier, healthier and more productive classroom experience.
