What do teachers have to say about mindfulness in the classroom?

We had a day when the power went out at school. The kindergartners were able to self-regulate with deep breathing to calm themselves because it was dark and many are afraid of the dark. The tools that I received from the SEL program were invaluable during this time

Sarah Uszak (kindergarten teacher, Prospect Elementary School)

My students would come in after recess, lunch, or the birthday snack completely rambunctious and distracted. By using a few mindful minutes at the beginning of class to practice mindfulness, students most times were able to settle into the moment and focus their attention on what we were creating that day.
