Time for Teaching - Episode 56- Dr. Sarah Hunter
This week we were lucky enough to snag some time with the incredibly sweet, kind, knowledgeable and BUSY Dr. Sarah Hunter when she stopped by our virtual meeting space for a chat. Dr. Hunter is leading some incredible work on mindfulness across Simcoe County (including here at Georgian), and was kind enough to share some information about her research and her work on mindfulness in the healthcare field, as well as some practically applicable strategies and ideas around mindfulness in our classrooms and lives. Her passion and expertise about mindfulness and good mental health was enough to bring Kim to tears more than once, and her suggestion that mindfulness and positive mental health practices be added as an essential employability skill had both Kim and Kelly jumping out of their seats to applaud. Dr. Hunter is a ray of sunshine, a warm and compassionate person, and is quickly becoming one to be watched in the world of mindfulness (we're predicting like co-hosting a podcast with Brene Brown type stuff). She is incredible, and this interview is a MUST listen. We hope you'll enjoy our chat with Dr. Sarah Hunter.
