Mindfulness is going mainstream, and author Deborah Schoeberlein pioneers its practical application in K-12 education. By showing teachers how to tune into what's happening, inside and around them, she offers educators fresh, straightforward approaches to training attention and generating caring in the classroom. Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness emphasizes how the teacher's personal familiarity with mindfulness seeds the ground for an education infused with attention, awareness, kindness, empathy, compassion, and gratitude.
