Teacher Talk Tuesday || Trina Markusson

Last week’s live was likely my favourite simply because of my guest Trina Markusson! Before I get into the live and how awesome Trina is, let me share a brief introduction taken from her website:

Trina Markusson has been practicing and studying stress reduction for over 15 years.  Trina uses her life experiences and professional trainings in Mindful Teaching and Mindful-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) to help you “be” present for each precious moment and help you to deal with daily stress more effectively!   She has taught Mindfulness strategies to many people and looks forward to sharing these life-changing tools with you! She currently resides in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Having Trina join me last week was such an honour.  The woman has the most calming demeanour.  Simply being in her presence made me feel calm.  The way she speaks, and her passion about spreading mindfulness is truly inspiring.  During this live episode, Trina talks about how she began her mindfulness journey. She speaks about incorporating her mindful practices into her and her students’ daily lives and answers questions about how to incorporate mindfulness into the classroom! I strongly encourage you to take the time to watch the video even if you’re not a teacher.  There are so many strategies that both adults and children can use to manage stress!

Having Trina in to speak as a guest on my Teacher Talk Tuesday was especially fitting as she is also a teacher.  So, when she talks about incorporating mindfulness tools into your classroom, she really does know what she’s talking about.  She is in the classrooms and understands what teaching is REALLY like.  She has what some of us like to call, “street cred” 😉

On top of being a teacher, Trina hosts mindfulness sessions for people of all ages and walks of life.  Classrooms, offices, and even sports teams. Trina feels living in the present moment should be a part of anyone’s life and I agree!  Looking to get Trina in as a guest?  Contact her here!

Last, I will be giving away one copy of Trina’s book Good Morning, Sunshine!
