Positive mindset for life!

Teachers are amazing people who need our love and support. We teachers need to love ourselves and this book shows, no implores teachers to develop their positive mindset. This book reminded me of something I used as a mum before teaching- a mother is a either a thermometer or a thermostat in the family. So are teachers. Thermostats regulate the temperature (atmosphere) while a thermometer merely reads the temperature. Thanks for reminding me!

Boils down to "be a joy detective."

This audiobook is aimed at improving the morale and outlook of us tired, overworked, ill-compensated, mistreated, and publicly shamed teachers. This is my 22nd year as a public school teacher. I've seen everything, every type of student, every type of parent, every type of administrator, and similarly every type of colleague. Having just finished this audiobook last week, and putting some ideas into practice, I don't feel that it really changes anything. The narrator does a good job, audio is clear. Yet, I found the overall content of this volume lacking. That is, after finishing it and putting ideas to practice, I honestly do not think anything will change professionally for me. Maybe I already have a positive mindset. I just don't feel that this text really does much for improving morale or outlook for us public school teachers.

Life Changing

This book brought happiness back to my teaching - for myself and my students. I kept thinking, "she must have worked in my school!" The author's understanding of teacher life is spot on. I have shared this book with my colleagues and we have begun a book study with it this year. I would recommend it to anyone whose love for teaching has been dimmed by politics and administration.

GREAT BOOK

This is a great book to help you get into a positive mindset. There are of free resources available throughout the book to help you create a happier classroom environment. I personally think this would be most valuable to new teachers or young teachers who are still trying to find that balance between teaching and personal life.

Great Read for Teachers Who Are Feeling Burned Out

Great read for any teacher, especially teachers who may be feeling burned out. Reading this book was a great way to start summer break. The strategies are very relatable and because the author is an elementary school teacher, the book felt like it was written for US brave souls that teach.

Effective and simple

Loved the ideas! My students love Brain Break. I remind myself to live in the moment and be grateful. Loved your quote verifications! Also a wonderful encouragement for life balance, to not over commit and to take care of myself. Happy teacher= happy students. Thank you for sharing your experience, knowledge and expertise.

Excellent message about being positive

The tasks in the book are practical and worthwhile. It might be ironic for me to say that the narrator sounded too positive... on the verge of saccharin. This might be cultural, as I am not from the USA. Despite this, I did listen to the whole book and have started to put elements of the philosophy into practice.
