38. The Mindful Teacher: Cultivating Inner Resilience in Ourselves as Teachers

Program: CPDCS - 17-18 School Climate and Culture - CC

Audience: Grades K-12 teachers

Dates: 11/8/2017

For many of us in the teaching profession, our professional lives may have started out with a deep inner calling. We may have held onto a sense that our occupation was also our vocation. However, as we continued to serve and lead in a variety of roles, staying connected to this calling and sense of inner purpose may at times have become challenging.
Teachers need of a deeper sense of community and more opportunities to cultivate a capacity for meaning and purpose in their lives. They need safe places and experiences that challenge us to, in Parker Palmer’s words, “live on the outside, the truth we know on the inside.”
This workshop discusses how teachers can nurture their own sense of purpose and vision and create opportunities for reflection and personal renewal for themselves and their students. The workshop will explore how participants can cultivate the habits of mind, body, and heart to systematically relieve the pressures that they face in order to give their best to those they serve.
Using principles, derived from modern brain research, the workshop will focus on how to strengthen a teacher’s social and emotional capacities by equipping participants with mindfulness practices that can help regulate emotions, increase compassion, and cultivate inner resilience

Schools spend considerable time perfecting lessons and purchasing the best program materials, but perhaps the key to student achievement isn’t just the perfect lesson.

In this session you will explore activities, structures, and facilitation strategies to build executive function.

Program: CPDCS - 17-18 School Climate and Culture - CC

Audience: School leaders, Principals, and Assistant Principals

Dates: 12/8/2017

For many of us in the serving professions such as being a school leader, our professional lives may have started out with a deep inner calling. We may have held onto a sense that our occupation was also our vocation. However, as we continued to serve and lead in a variety of roles, staying connected to this calling and sense of inner purpose may at times have become challenging.
Educational leaders need of a deeper sense of community and more opportunities to cultivate a capacity for meaning and purpose in their lives. They need safe places and experiences that challenge us to, in Parker Palmer’s words, “live on the outside, the truth we know on the inside.” This workshop discusses how Educational Leaders can nurture their own sense of purpose and vision and create opportunities for reflection and personal renewal for ourselves and others in our life and work. The workshop will explore how we school leaders can cultivate the habits of mind, body, and heart to systematically relieve the pressures that they face in order to give their best to those they serve.
Using principles, derived from modern brain research, the workshop will focus on how to strengthen a leader’s social and emotional capacities by equipping participants with mindfulness practices that can help regulate emotions, increase compassion and cultivate inner resilience.
