Minimalism is clearing out what you don’t need so you can prioritize what matters most. The philosophy “it’s better to want less than to have more” can radically change your life. As a culture, we are overloaded with excess information, activities and possessions. Come learn ways to simplify your classroom environment to improve student concentration and focus. You’ll be amazed by the practical benefits of minimalism and inspired to make small but significant changes to offer you and your students a calmer, quieter, more peaceful workspace.
