Burnout Cure - 2021 Para Educator Book Study

July 7 - 28, 2021

Special Education

How can you energize yourself to maintain or regain a positive outlook and love of teaching? What specific, immediate actions can you take to enhance your well-being and thrive both on and off the job?

Award-winning teacher Chase Mielke draws from his own research, lesson plans, and experiences with burnout to help you change your outlook, strengthen your determination to be a terrific teacher, and reignite your core passion for teaching.

Often lighthearted, yet thoroughly grounded in research on social-emotional learning and positive psychology, The Burnout Cure  explains how shifts in awareness, attitudes, and actions can be transformational for you and for your students. The book describes specific steps related to mindfulness, empathy, gratitude, and altruism that you can use on your own and with students via classroom lessons and activities. Equipped with these tools, teachers can be their best, so they can give  their best to the learners in their care.

NOTE: Hours can be used for 20-21 or 21-22 School Year.
