You will learn how the connection between mindfulness and applied positive psychology can help you to create a more meaningful and fulfilling teaching experience. You will learn strategies based on the latest science to build a sense of well-being in this coming post-Covid pandemic school year. Attendees will leave the session with tools and practices that they can begin using immediately in order to achieve a greater sense of wellbeing, a deeper sense of focus, and resilience skills to thrive during the upcoming school year.
