Daily Mindfulness Poster
Social-emotional learning is a subject that's often top-of-mind for teachers when it comes to their students. Although educators strive to bring a sense of comfort and safety to their classrooms, they can sometimes neglect their own self-care in favor of working long hours.
This Daily Mindfulness Poster was created to remind you to take a moment to breathe and center yourself each morning before you start class, whether you're a student or a teacher. This poster also comes in two sizes.
