Abstract: After discussing informal feedback from a district workshop for teachers of the gifted on the practice of mindfulness, the authors asked the question: Does research support the shared reactions of these teachers? A review of the literature showed there are a growing number of studies on mindfulness, but research on teachers and mindfulness is limited. However, the existing research supports the concept that teacher training in the practice of mindfulness is positive especially in the area of teacher burnout.
