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.

This book challenges much conventional thinking about what it takes to improve schools, balancing theory from several disciplines with stories from schools and practical guidance. A refreshing addition to the literature and an uplifting read.
