Book Description: 

In Teach, Breathe, Learn, Meena Srinivasan highlights how mindfulness can be an effective tool in the classroom. What makes this book truly unique is her perspective as a classroom teacher, wrestling daily with the conditions about which she writes.

Teach, Breathe, Learn provides accessible, practical application of mindfulness to overcome challenges faced during the school day.” Testimonials from students and colleagues are woven throughout the book. Teach, Breathe, Learn is designed for educators at all levels, parents interested in sharing mindfulness with their children, and anyone curious about how to cultivate their own mindfulness practice and eventually teach mindfulness to others.

Part 1 helps teachers develop compassion and shift from “reacting” to “responding” to demands.

Part 2 offers techniques for cultivating loving-kindness, gratitude and seeing students, colleagues, and parents as oneself.

The last section of the book introduces a curriculum teachers can use to incorporate mindfulness into their classroom, replete with lesson plans, handouts, and homework assignments.

Review

Mindfulness is the intentional, accepting and non-judgmental focus of one’s attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment and is has been introduced into the public school sector in the early 21st century.  Paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment caused helps students cope with problems that may crop up during  the day.  This book is designed to help the educator incorporated mindfulness into their classrooms.  The book is well-written and laid out nicely for optimal use.  I found it to be a fantastic resource.
