Vermont-NEA hosts the only ESP Conference in Vermont.  This year’s theme "Safe Schools For All" is a response to a growing number of issues in our schools from students coming to school who have experienced several traumatic events, to staff safety issues resulting from students who have difficulty controlling themselves, to students questioning their sexual identity, and so much more.  We hope that each ESP will look at the sessions (many full day) and determine what session will provide you with information and skills that will support a safer school environment for all.

This conference is for Vermont-NEA ESP members only.

We will practice mindfulness, relax, stretch, focus, and bring breathing awareness to quiet the mind and restore energy and concentration. These mindfulness strategies will provide calm and clarity in your daily life and help support students and your community.  You will leave this workshop with practical experience and tools to share mindfulness with your students that will build attention, self-regulation, and empathy.

Mindfulness instruction in schools “takes advantage of a natural window of opportunity during childhood, when the neural circuitry that allows us to pay attention, calm ourselves and attune to our own other’s feelings takes shape”.
