#1: Where can I network with other MiSP trained teachers?
We know that training to teach mindfulness to children and young people with MiSP is a unique experience and there is often a great sense of community and warmth with other participants on the course. We hope to support our trained teachers and provide opportunities to continue to develop your relationships within our community.
There are several ways that you can network with other MiSP trained teachers:
- Come to the our Teacher Surgeries to connect with teachers who are trained to teach the same curricula as you. These are free to Hub members and you can attend as many as you like: Teacher Surgeries | Mindfulness in Schools Project
- If you are a .breathe teacher, come along to a .breathe practice session – Teach .breathe Practice Sessions | Mindfulness in Schools Project – where you can share practice and ideas with other .breathe teachers.
- We would love to see you at our annual Conference. Each year Conference focuses on a different area of interest and Hub members can access recordings of part Conferences here: MiSP Conferences | Mindfulness in Schools Project.
- .b and Paws b teachers who are Hub members can attend our Teaching Skills Workshops free of charge – Teaching Skills Workshops | Mindfulness in Schools Project – you can book these in the Hub.
- Less formally, we host a regular Hub member sitting group that we would highly recommend you join. There are two sits per month via Zoom video conferencing, and these are a great way of sharing your own mindfulness practice with other MiSP trained teachers. You can register for the sits in the Hub – they are free to join for Hub members. There are also sits for our School Mindfulness Leads which can be booked here – Calendar of SML Sits | Mindfulness in Schools Project. We hope to see you at a sit in the future!
- You can also follow our work on our Facebook page where you can connect with other teachers. We hope this will become an invaluable platform to give and receive help from other trained teachers. Also do follow us on Twitter @dotbschools where there are many relevant exchanges about our work and the wider educational context.
- If you have questions which MiSP can help with, please email email@example.com for general information or firstname.lastname@example.org for teacher support and technical advice.
- The other way to network with other teachers is via the MiSP Trained Teacher maps. There you can seek out local trained teachers who are often very happy to have someone nearby for mutual support.
