1) Self-care strategies for overwhelmed teachers
Practicing Presence, by Lisa Lucas Most teachers enter the field of education to make a difference in children's lives. But many end up, as author, teacher, and consultant Lisa Lucas puts it, "tired, wired, and running in circles."

Written in an informal, conversational tone, Practicing Presence is filled with ideas, exercises, checklists, personal anecdotes, and practices you can use to reframe and establish a mindset that will enhance your focus and engagement in the classroom.

Practicing Presence focuses not on doing, but rather on being present in the life of the classroom. Each chapter includes self-care strategies to explore how to self-regulate, nurture self-acceptance, and promote compassion. This book gives you the feeling of having a personal coach who provides suggestions and routines so that you not only can deal with being overwhelmed, but rise above it.

Preview the entire book online and preorder now:
