You likely already know that helping your students grow into resilient adults is of the utmost importance, but is mindfulness the way?
I know Matt as a fellow teacher with me at The Bishop Strachan School, but I knew I had to interview him for this podcast when I heard through our school’s grapevine about the mindfulness practice he does with his grade 2 students. Ya. You heard right. Matt teaches people as young as 7 and 8 how to pay attention to their breath, develop emotional intelligence, and “unruffle their feathers”…all while also teaching them things like, oh you know, math and science and literacy. No biggie.
I so enjoyed my chat with Matt and felt so inspired to just start, literally tomorrow, with some of these very ancient and very accessible practices that ANYONE can do.
I had some minor microphone challenges with this episode and so you can hear Matt perfectly, but my voice is a little harder to hear. I thought the content was good enough to make up for this issue and I think you will agree.
