While there are already loads of books about how to deal with stress and take care of your health, at last here’s one that takes into account a teacher’s heavy workload and busy lifestyle. The author, an experienced teacher himself, avoids the blithe simplicity of typical “self-help” books to give you factual evidence, realistic steps, and straight-talk advice you can use immediately to
So instead of always shoving your personal needs into the background, here’s your chance to address them head-on and do a better job for your students by taking better care of yourself.

Book reviews for The Well-Balanced Teacher: How to Work Smarter and Stay Sane Inside the Classroom and Out
“After Anderson backs up all of these ideas with some truly wonderful research, he then starts to unwrap them one at a time and gives several, yes SEVERAL, different methods of application for each… A perfect read!”
—Paula Kay Glass, Educator, Atlanta, GA This review first appeared in The Educator’s Room blog.
Veteran teachers and seasoned experts explore practical ideas for any type of school, including best ways to support new, second-career, and graduate candidate teachers.
Based on their exciting work in the field, Kallick and Zmuda map out a transformative model of personalization that puts students at the center and asks them to employ the set of dispositions for engagement and learning known as the Habits of Mind. They share the perspectives of educators engaged in this work; highlight the habits that empower students to pursue aspirations, investigate problems, design solutions, chase curiosities, and create performances; and provide tools and recommendations for adjusting classroom practices to facilitate learning that is self-directed, dynamic, sometimes messy, and always meaningful.
