Teachers are often overwhelmed, undervalued, and disempowered in their roles. At the same time, they are uniquely situated to influence the lives of young people and even to change the world. This book offers a new vision for teachers as the architects of a more compassionate society, as well as methods to engage with teaching as a journey of self-realization.
When we feel the urge to cast judgment on others—whether a child, a parent, or someone else in our community—instead of turning inward to protect ourselves, we can open up to those around us.
