TARGET AUDIENCE: K-12 TEACHERS AND SUPPORT STAFF ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
In our fast paced society, it is becoming critical that we provide students with the tools to reduce stress and be more aware of where they are and what they are doing, in lieu of feeling overwhelmed by what is going on around them. This session will focus on an exploration of the value of developing mindful habits. Participants will have the opportunity to consider and reflect on a variety of insights and exercises to calm the mind. Teachers and support staff are welcome.
This learning opportunity is being offered through curriculum implementation funding from Alberta Education.
