"I found myself saying 'Amen!' continuously as point after point was right on target with my experience and perspective. The authors present and thoroughly discuss such vital teacher attributes as empathy, humor, relationships, reflection, self-discovery, self-awareness, and motivation. This book would be an excellent focus for a faculty on professional development days."
"Bill and Ochan Powell start from the double premise that teachers with strong emotional intelligence are able to help students learn in a more effective and efficient manner, and, perhaps more important, that emotional intelligence is not simply something that one is born with, but rather something that can be developed. The Powells take us on a wonderful journey that combines the theory of emotional intelligence with illustrations and vignettes that make the theory readily understandable in the context of the school and the classroom.
"Bill and Ochan Powell’s book goes some considerable way to explaining the 'you’ve either got it or you haven’t’ part of teaching, and will help teachers and school leaders identify why some teachers struggle to be effective in the classroom and, most important, how they can help themselves and be helped. It explains how and why relationships are at the core of what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a teacher, and how all teachers can develop stronger, more positive relationships that will result in better learning for students."
"The authors bring together the importance and impact of the teacher’s emotional intelligence upon the learner. This book provides clarity to the complex connectivity between emotions and cognition. With great care and sensitivity, Powell and Kusuma-Powell describe and outline the coordinated effort needed by school personnel to provide a series of activities and exercises for teachers in the area of emotional intelligences. A must-read for school administrators and teachers."
