Mindful of Equity – A Review from our Leadership Team

Natalie Levine, a member of CRC’s Leadership Team, shares with our readers her thoughts on an important article on being mindful of equity…she says:

“I found this article in a magazine for educators called Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center.  It addresses some important concerns and steps to take when teaching mindfulness to classroom students.  Among these is the importance of helping teachers become aware of their own intentions, feelings, and biases about their students as well as the importance of trying to figure out what underlies difficult student behavior:  Why might this be happening?  Where is this behavior coming from?  I found it relevant to our program, because our  curricula for parents and for teachers uses mindfulness as a tool, is concerned about self awareness around biases, and is grounded in the importance of reflecting on intentions and meaning of underlying behavior.”
