Mindfulness for Teachers workshop
Teaching is one of the most rewarding and also one of the most demanding professions in today's world. With so many uses of technology and continuous distractions, the need for teachers to have a mindfulness practice is becoming more and more crucial.
Teacher burnout is presenting itself faster during the school year and more rapidly in the first few years of teaching than ever before. The daily grind of student behaviors, high demands on teachers to show student growth, and working with a diverse population of high student needs are just a few of the stresses in the educational system today. No wonder teachers are exhausted and looking for solutions to help guide them through their teaching day and creating a learning environment where everyone can live, learn and thrive at their highest potential and that includes the teacher.
Mindfulness for Teachers Workshop offers simple, ready-to-use, and evidence proven mindfulness and yoga techniques to help educators manage the stresses of the classroom, cultivate an exceptional learning environment, and revitalize both their teaching and their students' knowledge acquisition. This program is focused on allowing teachers to gain knowledge and embody their own mindfulness practice that will not only seep into their classrooms, but will show a significant change in their personal lives, creating personal space that allows for a more full and rich life. A happier and more mindful teacher is vital for creating positive learning environments.
Drawing on basic and applied research in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, mindfulness, yoga and education, as well as having extensive classroom experience as a mindfulness practitioner, teacher, yoga instructor, and learning coach, Melissa will guide you through this workshop and provide teachers with practicial and experiential training.
