Riverhead Middle School educators received professional development on Nov. 19 and 20 as part of the district’s ongoing efforts to ensure all students thrive in an optimal environment. 

Over the course of two days, teachers participated in several workshops related to the theme “Culture of Care.” With a focus on mental and emotional well-being, they learned how to decrease stress levels in their students by employing mindful and relaxing exercises, gleaned techniques for delivering “brain breaks” to their classes, and learned how to implement mindful movement through the “Pure Power” curriculum. The sessions also explored the effects of stress on educators and students.
