Support Your Passion for Your Profession and Become a More Effective Educator

This inspiring book presents the concept of a heartprint—the distinctive impression that an educator’s heart leaves on students and colleagues during his or her professional career. For teachers, understand how teacher motivation, teacher-student relationships, and collaborative teaching all affect your self-efficacy, career, and professional development. For school leaders and administrators, discover your impact on staff, students, and school culture as you progress in your career and gain perspective on creating sustainable change.

The author writes in a conversational manner as he offers his own anecdotes and reflections on being a professional teacher and leader to help readers uncover their professional impact, increase personal teaching efficacy, and foster productive, heart-centred classrooms and schools.
