Elena Aquilar: Once in a while, a resource comes along that is so invaluable to our work as educators that I have to share it with you. Meena Srinivasan’s new book, Teach, Breathe, Learn: Mindfulness In and Out of the Classroom, is such a resource. It speaks to a yearning I hear across our country: a desire to teach and work in a way that is anchored in joy, emerging from compassion, and that is more humane and slower than the way we work now.
One teacher’s experience is a fine way to understand the mindful approach to teaching and learning.
Teaching stories reach the heart and the head.
