"Some say teachers' private lives should stay private. I say SHARING OUR STORIES IS A POWERFUL TOOL FOR SELF-CARE." -Dr. Val Hill-Jackson
Let’s face it, all humans will encounter challenges in life and teachers are no different. Sometimes these trials will knock the wind right out of us and cause us to fall into despair. But occasionally these setbacks, if educators pay attention, can offer new insights into ways to rebound from stressful life events. The PreK-16 educators in Teacher Confidential®: Personal Stories of Stress, Self-Care, and Resilience have all fallen down, but have learned critical life lessons from it; now they are ready to impart those messages to others. It is in the sharing with peers that educators can get up from a fall, often battered and bruised, and RISE STRONGER!
