What I’m Reading: “Master of Mindfulness, How to Be Your Own Superhero in times of Stress” by Laurie Grossman, Angelia Alvarez and Mr. Musumeci’s 5th Grade Class. I loved this book since I think mindfulness can really help a child excel. Plus it’s written by students for other students. Perfect!
Building Confident Learners: Mindfulness! I truly believe that by bringing mindfulness practices into our everyday lives we can empower learners. For young people I think it’s a skill that can be easily applied to help them process their emotional experiences and enhance their learning.
What Gives Me Joy: Mindfulness! Are you surprised? Really, I have found that practicing mindfulness has enhanced my life. It has helped me focus on my gratitude for the beauty around me, the people I love and care for, and it gives me a little time to stop, relax, and listen.
The joy of learning. Together.
