    Responsive Classroom Guiding Principles

    The practice of mindfulness is a powerful tool for cultivating a heightened awareness of what is happening in our minds, and learning how our thought patterns, perspectives, and attitudes shape the quality of our lives. As supported by a growing body of scientific research, the application of mindfulness by students and educators has the potential to improve academic achievement and mental health.
