A Teacher’s Daily Dose of Optimism
by Aline Kaprive, edited by Anabel Jensen, Ph.D. & Marsha Rideout
This book is dedicated to the educators of the world who need encouragement. Its purpose is to help teachers keep the fire and passion for teaching alive by providing daily support, plus a specific tip for caring for one’s self. To be the best at our jobs, we must care for ourselves before we can care for our students. It isn’t the day-to-day load that weighs us down, it is how we carry and manage it. If our general outlook upon life and moods are not at its best, we will be less effective with students. If we implement an EQ prescription for ourselves, we will avoid compassion fatigue, appreciate the treasures of teaching and will excel in optimism.
