In this episode, Kailey shares how she teaches mindfulness and social-emotional learning in her high school classroom.

She explains how she introduced mindfulness to her students at the beginning of the semester, how she created a social-emotional learning routine and how her students reacted to this daily mindfulness practice.

Kailey addresses common worries about teaching mindfulness in high school like : What if the students think it’s not cool and don’t want to participate? How will I find the time when I have so much curriculum to cover? And What do I do when students arrive late to class?

Finally, Kailey shares her student’s feedback on the daily mindfulness practice and what she plans on doing differently next semester.
