“Practicing mindfulness has helped me to handle stress more effectively. It not only helps me calm down in the classroom in certain situations, but it also teaches the students that it is possible to control your reactions.”

 

“Once I was able to use/master the mindfulness skills in my personal life, I naturally carried my behaviors into the classroom.”

 

“I was able to start applying the information and practices immediately and found that it did impact my teaching in positive ways.”

 


“I feel like my classroom has become a more peaceful and productive environment.”

 


“I am now able to recognize changes in my body temperature, heartbeat, and breathing as indicators of my mental fitness and adjust accordingly.”

 

“Mindfulness has helped me to be less stressed overall at school as well as at home.”
