Creating Wellness at Home and in School. Fastback.
Howatt, William A.
This fastback addresses the issue of stress by providing teachers with a resource guide that defines stress; normalizes the origins of teacher stress; provides a model for achieving personal wellness through life balance; and provides tools for reducing the effects of stress. Learning healthy habits can help teachers cope with the demands of their profession. Teachers who take good care of themselves are better able to facilitate learning. The ultimate goal of this fastback, therefore, is to help teachers meet the challenges of teaching by demonstrating how to deal with stress effectively. (Contains 17 references.) (Author/JDM)
