Teacher Appreciation Week begins Monday, May 7 (tomorrow). Whether you are looking for a present to send to school this week or an end-of-the year gift for your child’s teacher, we have some great ideas and a chance to win a free book to give to a special educator in your life.
Restoring Hope and Well-Being to Change Lives
by Dr. Adam Saenz
Give your teacher the gift of wellness. Local Psychologist, Adam Saenz, recently released his book The Power of a Teacher. “How did [Saenz] go from Juvenile detention to two doctorates with training at Harvard Medical School and Oxford University? Adam Saenz will tell you: it was the power of a teacher. ”
“Dr. Saenz is not your typical school psychologist. His powerful personal narrative and professional expertise creates the ideal combination to remind us all of The Power of a Teacher. This book will inspire you to make a difference and provide strategies to rejuvenate your own wellness. A must read for all educators!” — Kirsten Hund (former teacher, administrator, and current state-level educational leader).
In his book Saenz discusses occupational, emotional, financial, spiritual, and physical wellbeing and how these elements affect a teacher’s role on campus. Teachers can take the 50-item Teacher Wellness Inventory ™ to assess their current wellbeing. The Power of a Teacher is loaded with discussion questions to create the kind of interaction and dialogue among teachers and their colleagues that will build the support and accountability they need to live and teach well.
Ordering The Power of a Teacher
You can order The Power of a Teacher on Amazon. This is the gift that gives twice. Not only will this book encourage an important educator in your life, proceeds from The Power of a Teacher book sales will benefit the funding of student scholarships.
