Teaching is a wonderful profession, but it is one that requires huge amounts of physical, mental and psychological reserves. Inner resilience is a vital part of this, and the dialogue about how to develop it has been missing in conversations about teacher wellbeing. Resilience is ultimately the difference between being overwhelmed by stress and anxiety, to finding calm, purpose and joy in the work we do with young people. Teacher Resilience explores how we can build a more resilient mindset, and what practical actions we can take to be the best version of ourselves in the classroom. From self-talk to collaboration, conflict management to lesson planning and differentiation, no trigger of potential teacher stress and anxiety is left unexplored. With practical tools to implement immediately, this is the book that all teachers need to thrive in a demanding profession.

Quality Price ValueI thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I found lots of useful tips that once put into practice will (hopefully) reduce my stress and overthinking. As a pessimistic, the chapter on ‚ÄúGratitude‚ÄĚ was most beneficial for me, followed by ‚ÄúThe behaviour mentality‚ÄĚ chapter. Have reread both chapters a few times now to reassure my inner anxiety.
