Why Mindfulness is the Foundation of Your District Work

There are shifts in practitioners' attitude that occurs when an individual cultivates a mindful way of being. Attention, gratitude, patience and trust are just a few ways we shift. And, here's the good news, it's based in neuroscience. Join Erica Ebert, Instructional Specialist exploring Mindfulness, and her guest, Webster CSD Superintendent Carmen Gumina for a professional development session deliberately created to help leaders explore how Mindfulness is a foundational mindset to all of the work in your district.


This experiential learning will delve into the practice and science of Mindfulness as well as discuss how the Webster CSD began its journey. Participants will leave with a solid understanding of Mindfulness, simple ways to begin a personal practice, and ways to start a conversation about integrating this practice into your District's work.


Tuesday, August 6, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
