Mindfulness in the Classroom

Mindfulness has started to become a bit of a buzzword in the education space. Today we talk with a district mindfulness specialist, a psychologist, and a classroom teacher to explore what mindfulness is, what it isn’t, why it’s worth doing, and how to get started in your own life and in your classroom.

In this episode:

  • I speak with mindfulness specialist James Butler to discuss best practices surrounding how to get started with mindfulness in the classroom.
  • I interview psychologist Dr. Tori Olds about the deeper happenings in the mind when mindfulness is being practiced.
  • I chat with educator Jaclyn Mann about her experience in leading mindfulness activities in her classroom.
  • You’ll hear a couple in-class sessions of both Jaclyn Mann and myself leading mindfulness practices in our classes
