#3 Mindfulness in the Classroom

Teach Me, Teacher show

Summary: Hello everyone!<br> Ever wish you could still your mind or the minds of your students? Ever feel like you are just missing everything around you because of all the tasks that need to get done in the class?<br> For episode 3, we are taking on the BIG topic of <a href="https://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/mindfulness">MINDFULNESS</a>. To do so, we are sitting down with Staci Hammer, a vice-principal (and one of my dearest friends in the world) who has committed to a “year in mindfulness” over on her <a href="https://medium.com/@hammer.staci">blog</a>. Inspiring, thoughtful, and funny, her blog and this episode are two things you do not want to miss!<br> New to mindfulness? No problem. We cover everything from clarifying definitions and explaining the practice, to applying it in the class, with staff, and even how the science of it all supports the practice.<br> In the show, we reference a few things that I would like to link to below. Feel free to check them out now, after you listen,  or as they show up during our discussion.<br> Enjoy!<br> LINKS:<br> <br> * <a href="http://tpj.sagepub.com/content/87/2/254.short">Scholarly article on the success of mindfulness in prisons</a><br> * <a href="https://cft.vanderbilt.edu/guides-sub-pages/contemplative-pedagogy/">Mindfulness in the classroom hub</a><br> * <a href="https://goamra.org/">Further research on mindfulness</a><br> <br>
