How can we improve our children's ability to focus, develop empathy, and increase self-understanding & emotional intelligence... without spending a dime? Join Andrew Jordan Nance, the founder of Mindful Arts San Francisco and author of four Mindfulness books, including the popular Puppy Mind, and I as we take a conversational journey to uncover the richness a mindfulness practice can bring for yourself and your students.
Andrew give simple yet powerful tips for teaching children how to reconnect with their inner voice, explains why there are no "bad" emotions, and what we might be missing in our own lives that we can put into practice immediately so that we can model best practices of mindfulness for our students and children... even if you're teaching virtually.

There are ways we can teach students emotional regulation, growth mindset, and empathy while helping them to connect with themselves, and the environment. Join Dr. Julie Leto and I as we have a dynamic conversation about using gardening to help students learn lessons that will be invaluable in school and throughout their life. As Dr. Julie points out, all students are "at-risk", so whether you work with elementary age children, middle or high school students, this episode on connecting gardening to the classroom is likely to inspire you in seeing growth through an entirely new lens.
Dr, Julie has been a passionate advocate for children most of her life. She's helped families, communities and schools improve learning and motivation for 30 years as an educational psychologist, teacher and parent coach. An expert in cognitive load – how our brains handle quantities of input - an area more important than ever in our hyper-connected, always-on, electronic world, she sees that kids process information and need to be parented differently than we were.
Dr. Julie learned that the greatest impact for students are the result of changes made by the adults around them.

In light of recent events, specifically events that relate to the global outcries of racial injustice, the Black Lives Matter movement, acknowledgement of white privilege, and more exposure to witnessing violence founded in racism, I have chosen to create an episode to help educators hold space for their students to reflect on and process their own experiences. This is not meant to be a therapy session in the classroom, but there are ways which we can create therapeutic and safe environments within the boundaries and context of school.
I do urge you to listen to and absorb all of the incredibly rich content that is available and authored by members of the BIPOC communities, but if my teachings and style resonate with you, please listen to this episode, reflect, and process. I invite you to get comfortable in the discomfort of these conversations because they will ultimately transform us into the Compassionate Educators are students, our families, our communities, and our world need us to be.
