Overall Review:  

Teachers (and parents) who want to feel more peace in their interactions with children should read this book! No matter how much we may love them, some kids can push buttons and cause stress. Mindfulness for Teachers gives readers practical skills and exercises to help remain calm in difficult situations and give challenging situations the kind of attention that leaves everyone uplifted and feeling valued. 

This reviewer will be implementing many of the techniques discussed in the book starting on day one of the new school year, and it's sure to make a difference. Children of all ages can benefit from calmer, more peaceful teachers, and they're sure to be better scholars and more productive, happy people as a result. Dr. Jennings has provided educators of all types with an invaluable resource.
