Mindfulness in Education: Call to Inventory

posted May 11, 2017, 2:02 PM by Helen Kwong

On May 10th, 2017 the Office of Field Support hosted its first Mindfulness in Education: Call to Inventory event.  The focus of this gathering was focused around two main areas:

  • Strategies to support all members of the professional learning community in managing stress to improve the quality of professional performance.
  • Strategies to learn and teach to students to support their social, emotional and academic learning.

Participants included a diverse continuum of stakeholders and schools receiving services from our Field Support Centers.  Pedagogues, principals, assistant principals, FSC and Central offices came together and began a professional conversation and group sharing around the needs of supporting mindfulness programs in schools. Additionally, creating a professional learning community of educators and administrators with a common interest in mindfulness in education.
