1. What is The Well Teacher?

The Well Teacher is based on 20 years of wellness-related work with teachers. It was written as a guide for all teachers who want to take more control over their own wellness; as a resource for teachers who are struggling with any aspect of their wellness; and, as a resource for other educators and wellness providers who work with teachers. Most importantly, The Well Teacher is a starting point for anyone with wellness-related questions or concerns who works in the field of K-12 education.

2. How does The Well Teacher actually help teachers?

The Well Teacher can be used as a reference for teachers struggling with any aspect of their wellness. Feeling burned out? There is a section for that. Experiencing pain? There is a section for that. Feeling as though your classroom set-up is contributing to your disability? There is a section for that.

Chapters and sections have been organized in a way that allow you to read it in a linear fashion or by only reading the sections that are applicable to you. If you happen to have a specific wellness concern in mind, the introduction provides some handy suggestions about which chapters can best be grouped together. The Well Teacher truly is an A to Z guide that will empower all teachers to improve their wellness so that they can enjoy long and healthy careers in the classroom.

3. Can The Well Teacher help a teacher who currently has no issues?

Absolutely! The Well Teacher provides all teachers with the information and tools they need to be well and stay well. Because the tools and information found in The Well Teacher can be both preventative and remedial, teachers are better equipped to stay resilient when faced with wellness-related challenges. Whatever those challenges are, they will be easier to manage using the strategies found in this book.

4. Who else can benefit from The Well Teacher?

One of the best things about The Well Teacher is that it's not just teachers who can benefit from the information found in this book.
