Teacher Wellbeing Matters!
Grounded in research that explores flourishing schools and positive educational leadership, this book advocates for much more attention on teacher wellbeing. Offering a blend of theory and practice, this book is written to engage teachers, groups of teachers, and school leaders in conversations that help make sense of the often overwhelming demands inherent in teaching, the accompanying challenges of these realities, and their impacts on teachers’ wellbeing. The authors argue that as teachers foster the wellbeing of their students, they must ensure that their own self-care is a professional priority.
Cherkowski and Walker have tackled a very important area - the combination of theory and practical strategies about educator wellbeing make this book one to add to your professional collection.

Sabre and Keith have invited us to imagine workplaces in which we thrive, and that support the flourishing of the other adults and young people who inhabit these school spaces as well. They note that too many educators have become weary in their “well-doing,” and thus extend an invitation for us to explore educator “wellbeing.”
