Are you worried about educator well-being and retention, or wondering how to support students struggling with stress and trauma? Does it seem like your current initiatives are coming up short?
There’s a proven solution that’s always within reach. Mindfulness has been around for millennia, and modern science has now confirmed that practices like focusing on the present moment, being aware of thoughts and feelings, and acting with compassion are powerful interventions that can strengthen relationships and foster a sense of agency and belonging. But where do you start?
Join Seewan Eng and Argos Gonzalez from Mindful Schools in conversation with Dr. Cicely Warren, Assistant Superintendent of the Paterson Public Schools (PPS), as they discuss successful strategies to build resilient school communities. Mindful Schools has partnered with PPS on a multi-year strategy to integrate mindfulness into the district’s culture and SEL programming. Drawing on experience in PPS and hundreds of other schools, we share tips on adapting mindfulness practices to your specific school and district. In this edWeb podcast, you:
- Learn how to stay grounded as a leader
- Hear about building mindfulness into your existing programs (SEL, equity, etc.)
- Discover specific strategies tied to Mindful Schools’ free, research-based frameworks: Domains of Mindful Teaching and Rubric for Assessing Schoolwide Mindfulness
- Take away practical tips for getting started, even if conditions aren’t perfect
