With the 2014-2015 school year coming to an end, it is time to consider opportunities for professional development next year. To date, the South Burlington School District has trained almost two hundred educators in the implementation of mindfulness-based strategies in their personal lives and in the classroom with their students. Research confirms that these strategies build the capacity to focus, reduce anxiety, increase self-regulation and improve learning. Our district has taken a lead in this very important movement in education.
During the last two years we have invited educators from other school districts to participate in this training. The following school districts a just a few who have been represented to date: Winooski, Burlington, Essex, Shelburne, Colchester, Barre, Putney, and Springfield.
Below you will find information regarding our training for the 2015-2016 school year. If you are interested in participating, please check with your school district regarding professional development funds for either recertification credits or relicensing graduate credits. We offer both options.
