Practicing Presence: Simple self-care strategies for teachers
Book Study
Most teachers enter the field of education to make a difference in children’s lives. But many end up, as author Lisa Lucas puts it, “tired, wired, and running in circles.” This leads to many new teachers abandoning the profession or to burnout among veteran teachers. The purpose of the book study is to help you more successfully manage the frustration of feeling overwhelmed and establish a mindset that will enhance your focus and engagement in the classroom. When teachers care for themselves deeply and deliberately, they are better able to care for the people that matter most in their lives—their students, friends, and families. Each participant will apply the suggestions and routines to create a plan so they not only can deal with being overwhelmed, but rise above it. 


Due to the online nature of this course, participants are able to complete it in a time frame that works for them and their schedule as long as all components of course are completed by August 10, 2018. Upon completing all of the requirements, each participant will receive a certificate for 7.5 contact hours. 


Each participant is responsible for attaining a copy of the text prior to starting the book study.
