Teachers learn to cope with stress through intensive program

A teacher-training program called Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education helps teachers cope with stress. Teachers who participate in the workshop learn to recognize when they are becoming stressed and deal with it through meditation and other means. "I've learned to take a step back, calm myself down, and then respond to students with more empathy," one teacher said. "I can resolve issues more quickly, and my students show genuine concern for each other, because I am giving them that space." Edutopia magazine
