In order to address the social and emotional needs of, and the effects of trauma on, my students, I will implement mindfulness strategies in my classroom at least twice a week.

Describe actions the educator will take to attain the professional practice goals. Activities may apply to individual and/or team. For each action, list supports/resources from the school/district*, and the timeline/frequency. List as many actions as may be required.

  3. I will accommodate mindfulness strategies for the students I have in front of me, for their best interests.
  4. I will have my students practice mindfulness strategies at least twice a week.
  5. I will incorporate a minimum of five techniques to apply to differentiate for all students.
