Publisher's Summary

Author Deborah Schoeberlein pioneers the practical application of mindfulness in education. By showing teachers how to tune into what's happening, inside and around them, she offers fresh, straightforward approaches to training attention and generating caring both in and outside of the classroom.

Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness emphasizes how the teacher's personal familiarity with mindfulness plants the seed for an education infused with attention, awareness, kindness, empathy, compassion, and gratitude. The book follows a teacher from morning to night on a typical school day, at home, during the commute, and before, during, and after class.

This book is perfect for teachers of all kinds: schoolteachers, religious educators, coaches, parents - anyone who teaches anything.

Every Teacher Needs This

This audiobook is for ANYONE who teaches, from parents, to sex educators, to college professors. The objective is paying attention, and this advice helps tremendously.

I'm not a buddhist and I have a particular aversion to new age mumbo jumbo, but I am an evangelist for this book! I've shared Schoeberlein's instructions for reflecting on the day with friends, family, and co-workers.

Teaching is a stressful thing and if you aren't present, it only gets worse. This book not only gets you through the day, it makes you a better educator.

You're always in good hands with narrator Gabra Zackman, who lands on my "could read me the phone book" list.
