Cove teachers incorporate mindfulness into the school day to enhance the classroom and school environment and set the stage for students to be present and focused on learning. Mindfulness is about awareness, paying attention to one’s own experiences through listening to the mind and senses. Students learn to quiet their minds and be aware of their thoughts, feelings and actions. With this awareness and presence, students can hold a place of non-judgement and accept themselves and others and learn to react to situations in a mindful way.
