Mindfulness at Lombardy
Lombardy Elementary School encourages it's teachers to take place in mindfulness in the classroom. While this concept may be foreign to some, mindfulness is an approach to thinking in which students, teachers, and any other staff are aware of themselves, their surroundings and their emotions. Sometimes this could take the form of a little quiet time before or after learning, counting to ten in stressful situations, or just focusing on your breathing.
We believe that every one in our building should take care of themselves in every sense of the word. By practicing mindfulness, our family can be less reactive and more proactive with obstacles and stuggles we may face.
Keep in mind that while we encouarage mindfulness in the classroom, it is not something that every teacher is required to do, but something to incorporate in their own way.
