AUTHOR

Fisher, Bobbi

SUMMARY

In February 1999, Bobbi Fisher sent an email to a group of teachers nationwide, asking two main questions: "What are some of the specific stresses in your teaching situation and how do you deal with them?" and "When are the times that you feel the most joy in your teaching?" The response was overwhelming. From that mailing, along with subsequent ones to several hundred other teachers, this book grew.At the heart of Part I are the teachers' own words - their insights into their personal and professional lives, organized around their joys and pains, obstacles and opportunities, with Bobbi's thoughtful commentary interwoven throughout. The teachers express concerns about the current emphasis on standards, testing, and the problems these initiatives have created for themselves and their students. They explain how they balance time for others with time for themselves - and remain resilient in the process. Many talk about the importance of faith in their lives and how it helps them to achieve their goals. In Part II, Bobbi explores some specific strategies for achieving balance that she's shared with teachers throughout the country, in presentations and workshops - finding comfort in friends, tapping our childhood experiences, being open to spirituality (however you define it). She also provides reflection sections with writing activities to help you set priorities and stick to them. Completing the book is a bibliography of resources that teachers have found helpful in their quest for fulfillment."The Teacher Book" is a book for all teachers and administrators. You will find affirmation, inspiration, and encouragement as you search for balance in your personal and professional life.Fisher, Bobbi is the author of 'Teacher Book Finding Personal and Professional Balance', published 2000 under ISBN 9780325003146 and ISBN 0325003149.
