Mindful Educators is a workshop for Pre K, Elementary, Middle, and High School Educators and staff.  Mindful Educators is a workshop designed to give educators the tools to cultivate their own mindfulness practice and introduce mindfulness in the classroom.

Mindfulness means paying attention to the present moment without judgement.

Research has shown that mindful educators have higher levels of classroom management and are more attuned to student needs. Mindful students have shown significant improvements in emotional regulation, compassion, focus and engagement.
