Mindful Leaders Support Teacher Self-Care at New Song Academy
March 20, 2018
Under the direction of Principal Lisa Brown, S.A.G.E Wellness will be launching its Mindful Leaders program at New Song Academy this spring! In this program, parents and children learn about the tenants of social-emotional intelligence and mindfulness. Research has found that mindfulness can help develop deeper compassion for the self and for others, improve attention, and reduce stress. S.A.G.E. trainers work with parents and students to build skills in conflict resolution, mindfulness and restorative justice for participants to support the school community as Mindful Leaders, as well as share the practices at home and in their communities.
