Nancy MacKay, B.S., Pamela Seigle, M.S., Michelle Porche, Ed.D.: Teaching Presence: Bringing Mindfulness and Reflective Practices into K-5 Classrooms
Lunchtime Seminar April 4, 2013 (41:23 min.)

Michelle Porche, Nancy MacKay, and Pamela SeigleIn this seminar, Nancy MacKay, B.S., Pamela Seigle, M.S., and Michelle Porche, Ed.D. shared practices, insights and findings from a pilot program funded by the Center for Courage & Renewal titled “Weaving Strong Connections of Learning, Reflection and Mindfulness.” The program explored how training in reflective and mindfulness practices affects elementary school teachers’ self-awareness, self-management, stress management, teaching practice, and job satisfaction. Twenty-six teachers with prior training and experience implementing the Open Circle Curriculum for social and emotional learning participated in the pilot. The program, which included four days of training between January through September 2012, also explored mindfulness and reflective practice lessons and activities for elementary school students that teachers can easily incorporate into their existing Open Circle practice.
