Creating the Environment

The Mindful Teacher creates a classroom space that encourages students to connect the the present. There may be objects for  students to hold or touch to connect with the space. It is free of clutter. There may be art, music, or an area for movement or quiet. The classroom will have a pleasant scent. The classroom will have and inspire hope, joy, engagement, appreciation, and pride. The environment is safe supportive and free of bias.

Maintaining the Environment

The Mindful Teacher creates a safe space where students have a chance to support and encourage one another. This can range from peer mentors to group assignments. Short techniques such as breathing and tapping are incorporated into the classroom time. Students may revisit these techniques as needed through the day.
