Teaching is a fulfilling profession, but it can take a toll on teachers' physical, mental, and emotional well-being. To combat this, it's essential to develop inner resilience. This can make a significant difference in how teachers handle stress and anxiety while finding calm, purpose, and joy in their work with students. Unfortunately, discussions about how to cultivate resilience have been lacking in conversations about teacher wellness.
In his book, "Teacher Resilience," Jamie Thom offers insights into how to develop a resilient mindset and practical strategies that teachers can use to be the best version of themselves in the classroom. From positive self-talk and collaboration to conflict management, lesson planning, and differentiation, the author explores various triggers that cause stress and anxiety among teachers. The book provides practical tools that teachers can implement right away, making it a must-have resource for thriving in the demanding profession of teaching.
