Healthy Teachers promote healthy classrooms! Take a day just for you to discover firsthand what animals and nature can teach us as educators. When educators attend to their own health and well-being, research shows that students also enjoy similar benefits. Mindful Zoo Mindful You provides tools and practical skills to support you in developing self-care habits and mindfulness skills while understanding the science behind why it works and makes a difference in your classroom.
Mindful Zoo Mindful You is a joint (Ed)venture between the Akron Zoo and Heart to Heart Leadership that integrates mindfulness, self-care, and all the zoo has to offer into a unique one-day learning experience.
Mindful educators exhibit high levels of self-awareness and intentionality in their actions. Research suggests that there is a direct correlation between educator self-care and the well-being and performance of their learners.
Research also indicates that a more mindful presence helps you manage yourself so that you get the most from your job and bring the most to it.
This highly interactive program will help educators:
– Develop a mindful presence as to the importance of self-care strategies and how that promotes ongoing resiliency in one’s personal and professional life.
– Gain skills to more effectively regulate mental and emotional states to become more self-aware, focused, and compassionate with ourselves and others.
– Gain an understanding of how practicing mindfulness raises and influences one’s awareness and actions regarding implicit bias.
– Identify simple techniques to foster self-care that can readily be incorporated into you and your learners’ daily lives.
