Barrington High School Incorporates Mindfulness Programming
Barrington High School, IL In an effort to continually strengthen both the culture and climate of Barrington High School, administration and staff members have incorporated mindfulness programming to reduce stress and enhance well-being for both students and teachers. School administration has committed to a 5-year plan that offers teachers the opportunity to take an 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) class as part of their professional development. As new cohorts of teachers complete MBSR, they will be invited to participate in training to teach Learning to BREATHE in a way that works with their classroom schedule and curriculum. Brenda Nelson, LCSW, Student Assistance Program Coordinator is the L2B teacher at the school.
