Better teaching.
Less effort.

Teach from Your Best Self

Under the best of circumstances, teaching is a difficult job. Unfortunately, most teachers don’t work under the best of circumstances. Teach from Your Best Self addresses the very real situation that millions of teachers face: How to reclaim the joy of teaching when faced with the stress of modern education.

A Different Approach

Teachers today are inundated by new methods, new techniques, new strategies, new applications of technology for improving student outcomes. But what if student outcomes could improve by teachers doing not more, but less?

Teach from Your Best Self recognizes the importance of the teacher’s way of being—the self the teacher brings to the classroom—as the most crucial component to effective teaching and learning. When teachers teach from their best, they bring out the best in their students, making a teacher’s job easier.

Increased Resilience
