Start Where You Are: Developing Teacher Presence

Start Where You Are: Developing Teacher Presence

In this workshop we will explore how developing self-awareness can help us connect more authentically with our students, manage our stress more effectively, and make teaching more enjoyable. Not everybody wants nor needs to be a teacher of mindfulness, but starting from where we are we can all explore what it means to be more mindful and especially how to teach more mindfully. This can be cultivated by bringing greater awareness to our presence of mind, body and emotions.

This experiential workshop will use the most relevant research and theory on mindfulness in education and on social-emotional competencies to help us discover how being more mindful – more present - can enhance teaching and learning and promote teacher self-care. Participants will learn some simple strategies that can be applied in and out of the classroom as well as with colleagues and parents.
