Helping teachers bust frustration before it even begins!
Frustration is universal, even for the most effective and experienced teachers. The steady drip of forgotten pencils, classroom disruptions, and unrealistic expectations can chip away at our resolve, creating a chasm between our love of teaching and our ability to continue happily in our chosen profession. Even more, frustrated teachers pass their stress on to students, who can experience academic losses and instability from high teacher turnover.
Author Katie Powell knows that there's no "right" way to respond to specific frustrations. Instead, this book provides a process teachers can use to respond to difficult situations in healthy, effective ways that align with their own teaching style and goals. Frustration Busters helps teachers identify the source of frustrations, learn how to tackle them when they arise, and implement practices that will help prevent them from occurring in the first place. It's filled with ideas for practical application that support a positive classroom experience.
