Love Teaching, Keep Teaching:
The essential guide to improving well-being at all levels in schools.
After an unprecedented 18 months of great uncertainty and moving goalposts, teachers and leaders are experiencing burnout and disillusionment on a scale unknown before. And yet the challenges for education have never been greater: a mental health crisis, a rapidly changing job market, a shrinking global village and a fragmented society exacerbated by social media soundbites.
“With so many teachers and leaders questioning whether they can continue with the job or resigned to just ‘surviving’, never before has there been a greater need to reignite a passion for teaching and re-think the way we do education.
Love Teaching Keep Teaching provides the stimulus and tools to help education professionals at all levels to look after themselves, lead with emotional literacy and challenge thinking and norms which undermine the wellbeing and progress of our staff and students. This is not just about avoiding burnout but about loving coming to school again. It’s about, together, transforming school culture so that our schools and classrooms really do what they are supposed to: change lives and change the world.
BREAKING! I’m delighted to announce that Love Teaching, Keep Teaching: The essential guide to improving well-being at all levels in schools has made the shortlist of Learning Ladders’ ‘Best Books for Educators Summer 2021’ awards.
