STORIES OF COURAGE TO TEACH: HONORING TEACHER'S HEART By Parker J. Palmer - Hardcover **BRAND NEW**.
This book is a collection of essays, written by teachers at every level of practice, that honors the hearts of all teachers who struggle to reconnect with the source of their vocation. These teachers have found ways to serve their students, rekindle their passion for teaching, connect in life-sustaining ways with colleagues, and work towards creating educational institutions that seek to be places that, as Parker J. Palmer writes, "bring more light and life into the world." Their warm, practical, funny, and wise stories will provide inspiration, companionship, and hope to teachers who strive to reclaim the courage to teach.
With contributions from teachers who have used Parker Palmer's principles in their classroom, this book represents a follow-up to Palmer's The Courage to Teach. It encourages the hearts of teachers and offers inspirational, real-life depictions of what can - and does - go on when teachers reclaim their original passion for their work.
