Develop and implement an action plan for self-care
Cultivating focus, re-energizing oneself, and improving daily habits are essential for educators’ well-being and the good that they pass along to students. Mike Kuczala asserts that educators’ greatest tool is a mirror—in it, teachers will find their greatest advocate for personal growth, power, wellness, and vision: themselves.
However, finding the time to implement new habits can be hard. Because small changes are easier to plan for and realize, Kuczala concentrates on the habits that are most likely to yield significant improvements. This book guides educators in meaningful self-reflection by providing:
- Five critical practices to increase productivity and decrease anxiety
- Reflection prompts and vignettes to guide readers in developing self-care strategies
- Practical checklists and templates to help educators maintain goals
"The greatest gift is self-love." In this introduction to The Peak Performing Teacher, author Mike Kuczala shares his vision of self-love and self-care for readers and guides you through self-reflection to outline your personal goals, dreams, and beliefs.
