Burned Out. Stressed Out. Mental Health Crisis in Our Schools. Pandemic Learning Losses. These are the headlines, but they do not have to be your life! Learning and then practicing mindfulness has the power to change these headlines and improve not only the quality of your life but create a ripple effect in your classroom. Understanding mindfulness just might activate your superpowers and enable you to overcome challenges in a way that serves both yourself and the greater good.

Numerous studies have shown that mindfulness can support learning, improve physical and mental well-being, cultivate self-management, reduce aggression, improve social skills, and more—but without a conscious decision and a simple method to integrate it easily, it becomes just another buzzword. In this edWebinar you learn both the why and the how to practice mindfulness so you can calm the storm within you. Watch to learn and to receive the gift of respite from your busy life and reactivate the power that is truly within you.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.

Tida ChambersAbout the Presenter

ABC—Awareness, Breath, Connection. It’s simple to step into our own power, but it takes practice. Tida Chambers uses this approach to engage and empower others to discover and know who they are and to know where their unique gifts lie. Tida, a founder and co-creator of Live Free Yoga (LFY) and Lighter Being™, was key in the development of LFY’s foundational principle of empowering others to find wholeness and embrace their personal power in the development of a strong mind, brave heart, wise body, and noble spirit. Through her calm presence and compassion, she will encourage and guide you to develop a new awareness of yourself, your power, and your ripple effect on the world. Tida holds a BA in psychology from Earlham College and an MBA from Texas Tech University in healthcare and marketing management. She worked in the business world for over 15 years but has been teaching yoga and mindfulness for nearly 20 years. She has taught people ages 2 to 80, in public and private schools and universities, and has brought yoga to the physically challenged and cross-trained school athletes as well as traumatized communities after severe weather and school violence. Tida has a diverse private clientele that includes CEOs, successful businesspeople, and those seeking spiritual enlightenment.

Terrie NolandAbout the Moderator

Listen. Learn. Teach. It’s that simple. Terrie Noland uses this philosophy as an innovator and a motivator, and it’s evident as she leads, coaches and mentors thousands of K-12 educators about the science of reading each year. She has a unique perspective on the need to unify all stakeholders around a vision for education to smash the reading divide for the millions of struggling readers. Her daily mission is to add value to educators to help influence transformational changes in school districts across the country by addressing the needs of marginalized students. Terrie seeks to share her expertise and passion to encourage and to illuminate a path towards success and measurable outcomes.

If you looked at Terrie’s resume, you would be confused. Her undergraduate and graduate degree work placed her in the field of criminal justice. However, it was through continuous listening and learning that led her on a journey in education starting out in preschool teaching and administration, then becoming a Certified Academic Language Practitioner (CALP) and earning a Ph.D. in literacy and educational leadership from St. John’s University. Terrie is also a John Maxwell certified speaker and coach.

As Vice President of Educator Initiatives at Learning Ally, Terrie works to ignite enthusiasm and excitement by building champion educators and administrators on creating cultures of literacy and learning.
