Creating a safe place for LGBT students in your school
Limited Capacity filling up

A Safe Space is a welcoming, supportive and safe environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students. We know that school is not always a safe place for LGBT students. Most LGBT students frequently hear anti-LGBT language and experience harassment related to their sexual orientation and gender expression. Majority of LGBT students feel unsafe at school and are likely to skip class or even full days of school to avoid the anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment they face on a daily basis. But educators can make a big difference! For many students, simply knowing that allies exist can be a source of support. Research shows that LGBT students with many supportive educators feel safer at school, skip fewer classes, and earn higher grades than students without supportive educators.

Mindfulness Integration into the Daily School Curriculum: The Story of One School's First Year-Long Mindfulness Integration Program
Limited Capacity seats available

Washington Montessori School in New Preston, CT has had a yoga program since the founding of the school in 1965. In the spring of 2014, Head of School, Pat Werner, and Director of Development and Yoga teacher, Ali Grimes, reviewed the pros of receiving a 45 minute-1 Hour yoga class once a week at WMS, (which Lower El, or 1-3 grade and Upper El, 4-5 grade have received for many years.) Pat and Ali wanted to create a program that would reinforce and integrate the principles that children receive from yoga and mindfulness into a daily format. The challenge they both agreed upon was the training of school teachers who did not all practice yoga and meditation. Ali expressed that this was where she saw a problem with some of the programs out there, that provide a 1 or 2-day immersion for teachers. This is where the roots of the idea for the Mindfulness program at WMS began. Ali wrote the curriculum for the year, drawing upon her 8-year background of teaching yoga and meditation. Students in Upper El would begin their day with 15 minutes of Mindfulness, during which there is a self-awareness practice, a portion of yoga and yogic breath work and a 7-8 minute guided mediation. Ali spent two days/week in each class guiding the practice for students and teachers, then the teachers would guide the remaining three days of the school week. Weekly practices were simple and written out clearly each week. Amazingly, within a couple of weeks, the students expressed interest in guiding the weekly morning practices themselves and did so successfully. One of Ali's personal goals, was not only to see the children practicing self-awareness, meditation and mindfulness, but truly learning how to connect with their breath deeply. The program achieved this with students as well as teachers within the first year. Teachers felt grateful to have the time to receive mindfulness guidance in the morning two days/week and were able to teach it themselves from a more embodied and integrated place as the year progressed. The Mindfulness Program at WMS will continue during the 2015-16 school year and expand to Lower El (1st-3rd years,) and Middle School (6-8th.) This curriculum is an excellent model for other schools to help successfully integrate mindfulness practices into school. Like WMS, other schools can utilize staff with yoga or meditation teaching backgrounds to grow the program in a similar way.

Behind blue eyes: Supporting students with mental health disorders
Limited Capacity filling up

As the front-line mentors of students on a daily basis, and as the shapers of the environment where one-fifth of the U.S. population is found on a given school day, educators play a critical role in enhancing the mental health of students. It is not a new insight that mental health concerns must be addressed if students are to succeed at school. As educators it is our job to help ensure schools are caring and supportive places that maximize learning and well-being in order to strengthen students, families, schools, and communities. Take an inside look into one student’s heroic journey with depression and along the way learn how to provide support to students who are struggling to cope with the demands of daily life.
