Limited Capacity filling up

Teaching students with additional needs inherently challenging, both technically and emotionally. While there are an abundance of technical skills and technologies to ease this difficult work, teachers are often expected to manage the heavy emotional lifting on their own. This presentation will therefore offer concrete strategies to develop mental calmness, evenness of temper and the ability to maintain composure, especially when confronted with a difficult student or situation, or both.

The presentation will include a summary of an expanding body of literature regarding the role and potential Mindfulness in education.
