Two days ago, the whole NuYu team stayed after school one day to teach teachers how to relieve stress, and, in turn, help their students relieve stress, by splitting up into six different groups, each teaching a different method of stress relieving. The groups were Volunteering & Empathy, Meditation, Yoga, Drum Circles, Responsible Decision Making, and Journaling. Teachers moved from classroom to classroom to get a taste of each one in 15 minute sessions.
There are more photos of the Professional Development Day in our Digital Scrapbook, and much more!
In a few days time on Monday the 8th, we will be teaching teachers, however, this time District wide, the same things we taught the teachers in our school at High School North. That means teachers from kindergarten to twelfth grade. That's a big age gap for the students! But these methods work for anyone (unless you don't have drums, which in that case, try something else). So, what are you waiting for? Just find a quiet place to meditate or do yoga, or put some time management tips to work. No matter what age you are, they will always come in handy.
