An award-winning teacher draws from his own research, lesson plans, and experiences with burnout to help you reignite your passion for teaching. How can you energize yourself to maintain or regain a positive outlook and love of teaching? What specific, immediate actions can you take to enhance your well-being and thrive both on and off the job? This work can help you change your outlook, strengthen your determination to be a terrific teacher, and reignite your core passion for teaching. Often lighthearted, yet thoroughly grounded in research on social-emotional learning and positive psychology, this volume explains how shifts in awareness, attitudes, and actions can be transformational for you and for your students. It describes specific steps related to mindfulness, empathy, gratitude, and altruism that you can use on your own and with students via classroom lessons and activities. Equips teachers to be their best, so they can give their best to students.
